To celebrate the completion of the 2022 Robotics Summer Camp, the team hosted its annual community barbeque.
It has been Titanium’s tradition to commemorate the end of summer camp by bringing out the grill and flipping burger patties to enjoy with the robotics community.
Cabinet members, summer camp students, team alumni, and mentors all gathered Thursday to enjoy the summer and celebrate. The team’s student-comprised cabinet grilled burgers and served toppings, treats and drinks outside San Marino High School’s robotics room.
The afternoon was filled with the excitement of both concluding the robotics summer camp and the promise of the upcoming season. Being able to spend time with the Titanium family has been a great way to reignite passion for robotics, as well as reflect on the past year’s successes.
The team has enjoyed working with its summer camp students this year as they have stepped up to challenges and exercised their creativity. In the final week, continued to participate in robotics engineering classes.
In programming class, students coded and tested a drivetrain, which is what gives robots mobility. In electrical engineering, students practiced wire management and added finishing touches to their robot. LED lights were added to their drivetrains that were built and wired during the previous weeks. To cap off the curriculum, a trivia game was hosted to test the students’ knowledge of the main components of a robot. After taking lessons in programming, computer aided design, mechanical and electrical engineering, marketing and finance, the young engineers have progressed admirably. It has been great for the team to be able to growth from the students over the duration of the camp.
