Capo Robotics Club: The Joys of a Blinking Light

Thoughts, history of the Capo Valley High Robotics Club.

This is honestly the most fun thing I've ever done extracurricularly. Ever.

I'll just give a brief history lesson (for the history books-er-more like archive of Patch)

STARTING UP:

It was the most out-of-the-blue and random invitation ever. My friend (still named V) came up to me one day and asked, "Hey, I'm starting up the Robotic Club, want to be VP?" What else could I say? Opportunity came-a-knocking and I answered. :)

I was then introduced to the club advisor the next day, and is he one awesome Physics teacher. Pity I won't get him until junior/senior year. 

We typically have Monday meetings at lunch and so called "build sessions" after school, and we had the second after-school session today. Under the fantastic instruction of our advisor, we got around to making a simple light blink. Not the most exciting project, but hey, first steps, right?

And if any of the club members are reading this, thanks so much for sticking with this geeky little club! :)

And now I'm off to play Minecraft, because what else does a 14-year-old do after tough science homework?
