As the school year is starting Snowbots is looking for new members to join.  We welcome anyone who commits to the club.  We know that some prospective members may feel that at the beginning of university they won’t have any useful skills. I can tell you that this is wrong. I joined Snowbots in the first year of university. At first it was true that I didn’t know much, but being in Snowbots taught me what I needed to know to be useful.  I ended up putting everything outside of the computer together for our winning robot from the modifications on the rc car to house our sensors to the microcontroller code.  Now I’m the Head of the mechanical design in Snowbots and can tell you that all you need is a strong interest in robotics to be a useful member of the team.

So if you would like to join Snowbots I ask you to e-mail us at ubcsnowbots@googlegroups.com.  We have weekly meeting on Saturdays from 10-2 in Frank Forward 519, if you are though the doors of the building are locked so send us an e-mail if you plan on dropping by.
