    I taught this camp a few years ago, and I would just like to point out that it's a great way to get started on a robot for the December VWCC competition. The biggest challenge most students face is getting a team together and keeping it together, and I would like to see Roanoke Robotics helping with that.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
