Favorite Memory/Memories about Robotics: One of my favorite memories from Robotics was when we traveled to Cleveland, Ohio for the Buckeye Regional Robotics Competition last year. The reason I chose this as my favorite memory is because of the atmosphere of the competition in general. It was a positive atmosphere with great sportsmanship, enthusiasm, and energy. Each team member on the Robotics team came to compete and put up a challenge for the other teams that came to the Competition. We may have not won the Competition, but we still had a great time in Cleveland, and we learned a lot about the ethics of a Robotics Competition.

Reason(s) for Joining the Team: The reason I joined the Robotics Team this year, is because I want to continue my pursuit in my future career in Technology.

Goals for this Year: My goals for this year on the Robotics Team are to learn new things, and develop new skills that I can use during my time on the Robotics Team and in the future. I want to increase my growing knowledge of Robotics this year in my pursuit for my future career in Technology. Lastly, I want to inspire others around me, and do the best I can to help others around me on the Robotics Team, and others that are not on our team.
