Vex Robotics

   Harrison Bay Future Ready Center is offering a Robotics Club for students. Mr. Keith Bright is the sponsor for the club, and he is helped by Ms. Leverette, Ms. Lynda Pickett and Ms. Karen Haynes. The club meets on designated Fridays that are scheduled for clubs.

   While the club is open to all students at Harrison Bay, currently most of the members who are actively designing, building and competing are seniors. The members design and build robots, but they must carefully budget as well. One big issue to consider is the expense of building a robot.

   The budget for the club is $2,000 per year. This is one of the biggest and most popular clubs at Harrison Bay. Team members really enjoy the club and like competing against other schools. The process takes a few weeks, and the students are constantly fixing and upgrading the robots. The robots are inspected before each competition.

   The club members are divided into different departments. There is a captain, driver, two mechanics, designers, and programmers. These departments join to make a cohesive and competitive team.
