“It’s helped given me a place to relax and connect with others. That and robotics has also helped teach me life skills,” Hare said.

Team captains and juniors Jamie Comer and Vy Nguyen shared how they felt the robotics team shapes them into adults.

“I feel like it taught me a lot more practical life skills that school wouldn’t have taught in normal classes, like time management,” Said Nguyen

“It definitely forced me to learn how to deal with managing projects. Trying to deal with people in a more hectic setting,” Comer said.

Nguyen stressed how the robotics team has been life-changing.

“I feel like it’s opened me up to a lot of different people I wouldn’t have ever met… I feel like it really opens your mind, it changes your perspective on things,” she said.
