After two weeks of recruiting, applications, and interviews, we would to welcome this year’s batch of new members!
Last Saturday, we had a fantastic time getting to know over 50 new members. Our new members range from various engineering backgrounds from first-years to masters students, as well as a few students studying computer science.
Our day consisted of a brief introduction to our Technical Lead (Scott Churchley), Admin Co-Leads (Paula Morales and Michaela Ragoonath), Electrical Lead (Ellis Su), Software Co-Leads (Kevin Zhang and James Petrie), and Mechanical Lead (Brian Wang), as well as the rest of our current team members. Each lead described their sub-team’s contributions towards Thunderbots and their overall goals for the year, followed by an explanation of our most important competition: RoboCup! We then broke up the new members into their designated sub-teams to further discuss the robots. Of course, we had to celebrate with some pizza and beverages! Take a look at some of the photos below:
