Robotics Group Receives $1,000 Donation from Chinese Club

The Chinese Club of San Marino presented a check for $1,000 to the Titanium Robotics club.
The robotics club was started more than 20 years ago by an engineer at NASA. The mission of the club is to provide opportunities in STEM for everyone no matter their age, race, gender or background. Titanium Robotics is one of the largest student organizations at San Marino High School with more than 50 active members.
Organized with a bicameral cabinet, with a business and engineering side, presidents of each division lead sub teams of graphic design, writing, finance, marketing, electrical engineering, mechanical engineering, computer aided design and programming.
Advised by longtime mentors Scott Barton and Keiko Hiranaka, students build and program the robot themselves. This year, they placed seventh at their first regional tournament in Orange County, and seventh in their second competition, the Sacramento Regional.
“Several innovations were added to this year’s robot, including swerve drive capability and using an AI-neural network to recognize path objects,” said computer programming captain Marcus Koh.
Celine Chih, this year’s business president, said that the $1,000 donation was critical to purchase robot parts, and gives her thanks on behalf of the team. Every year Titanium Robotics holds a robotics summer camp for middle and high schoolers for six weeks, where they hold lessons in each sub team and run hands-on activities.
