“A TEAM IS A TEAM A TEAM”
Team D values camaraderie, cohesion, and teamwork in order to better our robot and ourselves as human beings. We strive to create an engaging and fun space to learn more about robotics and engineering in general. In our team, we all have a place here and a unique role to fill that correlates with our distinct abilities and talents. Since we view robotics from a holistic viewpoint, we understand that the Engineering Notebook, the Robot itself, and everything in between is meaningful and contributes to our success as a whole.
“Media is one of the most important roles on our team. The reason for that is because we need teams to see us and remember who we are. This can also mean helping out with the design of the team website.”
