Robo Sapiens started as a rookie robotics team in September of 2014 supervised by Mr Kleiman who is a Biology Teacher with no robot building or engineering experience. The team consisted of eighteen enthusiastic students from grades 9 to 12. We entered into robotics with a complete lack of experience, but an overabundance of enthusiasm and curiosity. We came together as a team and successfully overcame all of the setbacks and to build a simple, yet functional robot which competed in the 2015 FIRST Robotics Competition (FRC). In Our second year of competition, we hit the ground running with a better understanding of the competition and several returning students with their newfound robot know-how. In this second season, we were the 3rd alliance captains in the championship rounds and made to the semi-finals.
Our long-term goal is to continue our path as a robotics team that is passionate about innovation and technology and to find more opportunities to share our passion with the school and the community.
