Get to Know Team 2412 – The Robototes!
We hosted a Robotics Open House in our shop the first week of school and showcased our T-shirt cannon at school-wide assemblies, giving t-shirts with our School’s new Redhawk mascot on them. We welcome students of all races, languages, gender identities, and beliefs who find a place doing everything from media to mechanical. Mindfulness Minutes – addressing microaggressions, racial injustice or other small reminders to promote self-care and strong mental health. – Tasbeet I.
Q: What is one thing you’d like everyone to know about your team? Bordies, the pom pom bird mascot, are the spirit of the Robototes. They represent compassion, fun, and friendships. – Tasbeet I.
Q: What is an important lesson your team has learned recently? Each challenge we face opens a gateway for new innovative opportunities. COVID allowed us to evolve by focusing on our team as a whole, such as inclusivity within our buddy system training program, Under My Wing.
