As VP of the team this year I’m going to talk to y’all about a couple of things I learned my first year on the team. Last year was my very first year on any type of robotics team. I thought at first it was a joke and only nerds do it. Well I was very wrong. I met some of the coolest guys and gained some of the best friends from it. I learned a lot of things like team building, different types of machines, motors, and pneumatic cylinders, and most importantly I learned a lot about safety. Mr. Knotts choose me as the safety captain for the regional’s and championship last year. Going into it I did not think it was very important because everybody knows about safety and being safe. Through reading the safety rules, listening to the safety mentors at the regionals and seeing other teams safety guidelines I realized safety should be our number one priority. So as your VP this year my number one priority is promoting safety and teaching safety in the younger leagues like the Lego League. Through these first couple of months I will be teaching you all safety and when it comes time to the kickoff I will elect someone else to be it. This person will have to always follow the rules and teach safety to other teams and kids. So until then all of us as team 3802 will promote safety and make it our number one priority.
Your Vice President and Safety Captain
