Hard work, dedication, and team- work is what it takes for the robotics team to achieve its goals.

Jesuit robotics puts a lot of time and effort to make their robots perfect. They build, design, and program during their time on the team. This
is what makes them such a successful robotics team.

“The robotics team practices every Saturday from around 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., for dozens of weeks, plus many extra days,” said junior Samuel Kreifels, a member of the robotics team.

There are lots of positions on
the robotics team. A few positions are: captain, head of design, head of manufacturing, head of build, head of electronics, and head of programing.

“The team is divided into several smaller groups: design, manufacturing, build, electronics, and programing,” said Samuel.

Jesuit High School competed for the 2015 MATE International ROV Competition in Canada. They left on the twenty first of June to St. John’s, Canada. They competed with an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) this year. The robotics team won the competition on the twenty seventh of June for the fourth time in five years. They defeated colleges such as Purdue University, California Polytechnic State University, and Memorial University.

The robotics team is one of the most treasured programs at Jesuit and they’ve brought home the gold for the fourth time in five years.
