With World Championships in the rear view mirror, Carlmont’s robotics team, known as Deep Blue Robotics, is preparing for another year with new recruits.

The Deep Blue Robotics team will have 90 members this school year. Students have the option to join the club, which operates outside of school hours, or enroll in the class, which is during sixth period.

The club has established their main goals for the coming semester, one being community involvement.

This isn’t a bunch of wrench twisting; it’s community and bonding”

— Sarah Nissov, a senior

“One of our important goals as a club is to have lots of outreach. We want to get the word out to the school and the community. Another goal right now is to conduct lots of training because we have about 60 new members, and we’re going to train all of them,” said senior and club president Joyce Saltzherr.

As the build season does not begin until the second semester, members have fewer work sessions and team meetings until January.

Sixty of the 90 members this year are new to the club.

“I joined this year because I’m interested in engineering, and I felt that it would be something that would expand my views on robotics. We just had our first meeting and have begun shop training,” said Justin Eng, a senior.

The robotics team includes several different sub-teams. Students can contribute to design, fabrication, control, media, fundraising, and outreach.

“I’m going to be doing all of the physics and math calculations we need for the design of our robot. Hopefully, by the time build season starts everyone will have enough training to be helpful and be able to contribute,” said Sammy Zhang, a senior and member of the design sub-team.

Robotics Club continues to welcome all interested students.

“There are lots of reasons to join Robotics. It’s a great place to make friends and learn a bunch of technical skills side by side. This isn’t a bunch of wrench twisting; it’s community and bonding,” said Sarah Nissov, a senior.
