Scorps 6934 - Reflecting on FRC 2018

My participation in FRC through team 6934, the Scorps,
has allowed me to develop a plethora of applicable skills. In today’s job market, entry-level jobs are requiring employees to be knowledgeable and experienced, making the beginning of any career feel like a daunting task. Through my experience on the Scorps, I have gained knowledge in mechanical and electrical engineering and implemented my knowledge in programming. Above all, FRC has allowed me to discover my true passion in life. I always knew that I wanted to have a career in technology, but could never envision myself as a web developer or an IT consultant. After competing at our first regional I realized that my passion was in robotics. Next year I plan to major in computer science and minor in robotics engineering and hope to return to FRC in hopes of assisting others in realizing their dreams through FIRST as I did this year.

LEAD PROGRAMMER

FRC has helped prepare for the furture to come. My role on the team was working on the electrical side of the robot, helping to program it, and developing a website where fellow teams can see our progress and contact us for any help they may need. It has been through this team that has helped me decided that I want to pursue a career in the computer science field. I've learned to communicate properly with peers in order to create something that was of value to me, and I hope to use the skills that I have learned in the future.

During this years competition I learned how to organize a group of people to work together and build upon my leadership skills. I also learned many things about coding, wiring, and engineering like soldering, crimping, using Java, and doing the math for metal parts on the robot. I also learned as president of the club that communication is key in completeing a task and building trust as a team

PRESIDENT - PROGRAMMER - MECHANICAL CREW - ELECTRICAL CREW

I learned the importance of problem-solving in the engineering worls and the necessity of teamwork. In addition, I learned to push my limits and work around a deadline.

ELECTRICAL CREW - MECHANICAL CREW - LEAD TECHNICIAN

Throughout the FIRST robotics season I learned a great deal not only abuot engineering, but about teamwork and sportsmanship. I made leaps and bounds in my knowledge of electical and pneumatic systems while also discovering the nuances of mechanical engineering and leadership.

Xavier Barneclo

VICE PRESIDENT - ELECTRICAL CREW - MECHANICAL  CREW

I learned how electronic components work together with mechanical components to form a functioning robot. I also learned how to assemble small components of a machine, and then to combine them to form a final product. I also realized the importance of teamwork, as many of our tasks required multiple people to work together.

Through this years competitions we were able to grow both as club members and asxz individuals. We grew closer together and were able to work fluidly as a team. Whether it was working together building our robot, or cheering on our drive team. We learned first had value problem solving skills, and how to make decisions under pressure. We also were able to engage in fierce competition with other teams, while still respecting them as individuals. In all, FIRST robotics was a great way to build lasting friendships, and get some first hand engineering experience.
