Huskie Robotics is thrilled to announce our first event to welcome students who may be interested in joining our team. No robotics experience is needed, and all are welcome. Huskie Robotics participates in the FIRST Robotics Competition. While our competition season starts in January, we will have some preseason events throughout the fall semester.
This first event will be Wednesday, September 16th from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. Check in starts at 6:00pm. We will gather and check everyone in the NNHS Bus Lot (enter from Mill Street). The event will be entirely outside.
Please RSVP in advance by completing the following form by Sunday, September 13th. This helps us plan the event. Of course, if you don’t complete the RSVP for some reason and want to attend, please do.
We will be following all the required protocols to protect students, coaches, and mentors:
- masks must be worn at all times
- all participants must turn in a permission slip signed by their parent or guardian
- all participants must turn in a symptom monitoring checklist (easier to bring a completed version but can be completed on site)
- social distancing (6′ separation) must be preserved at all times
- participants will be in groups of less than 50, each group will only interact with themselves
Participants should bring:
- permission slip
- symptom monitoring checklist
- bug spray if desired
Throughout the evening, students will have the opportunity to meet current members of the team (students and mentors), see last year’s robot in action, watch videos that capture the experience of being on the team, and participate in various activities to learn more about Huskie Robotics and start to get to know each other.
If, for any reason, you cannot attend the in-person event but are interested in Huskie Robotics, we will have an online event as well. When you RSVP, please specify that you are interested in the online event, and we will email you the Zoom invite. The online event will have almost the same activities as the in-person event.
If you are interested in Huskie Robotics but cannot attend the in-person or online event, please still complete the RSVP form and ask to be added to our Canvas page.
We hope to see you on September 16th!
