Special Note to Parents & Students
We’ve had many parents who want to encourage or “coax” their child into robotics for a multitude of seemingly good reasons (perhaps this is what you think they want, looks good on transcripts, etc). This is understandable and makes sense. Many students who have been encouraged to join the team by their parents and don’t fully have their heart in it have not been successful, and some have left the team or had to leave. Please do not push your child to join the team unless they, on their own accord, want to fully commit and spend countless hours working with the team, and robotics is their idea of fun. Most of these cases where students join for their parents sake do not end well for the student, and this best to avoid.
