All kinds. I really need to develop some skills in programming and electronics.
Last year, I helped a high school robotics team design and build a robot for the FIRST Robotics Competition. It was a bit rickety, but it had some success. I'm currently working with students to learn on VEX robot kits.
I want to learn about robots so I can be a better coach for my team. Some schools have very impressive, very effective machines, and I want my team to be able to build something great.
I'm a high school science teacher who started a Robotics team because it sounded like a great opportunity for students and a lot of fun. It is, but now I need to learn how to be a decent coach.
