Highland Park Robotics team

The Highland Park Robotics team made it to the championships, held in St. Louis, this year, which they didn’t expect to do. After their victory I interviewed some of the team members, and here is what they had to say.

What is your name/grade?
Alexis Lipstein 9th grade
Owen Krumm 10th
Morris 9th
Kate austin 9th

How did you feel about making it to championships?
Alexis I was pretty excited to hear that we got in to championships. I also think we did very well.
Owen Pretty exciting, did better than we thought.
Morris Felt great, our team haven’t been this far since 2010.
Kate I feel like it’s an accomplishment.

What made you want to be part of the Robotics team?
Alexis At an open house they were demoing one of there robots and I thought it was really fun and interesting.
Owen I find building things to be interesting, competitive atmosphere around building things.
Morris Really into technology, a friend convinced me to join
Kate I’m very interested in skills like engineering. It’s important to add women to it because it’s male dominated

What advice do you have for students who want to join the Robotics team?
Alexis Come to a demo and talk to the team. If you’re interested you can come to the wood shop and join the team.
Owen It’s a worth full experience, be dedicated.
Morris There’s some thing called gracious professionalism it’s where you get to know them and make friends.
Kate Don’t be afraid to try new things because it’s seems scary at first but you will make a lot of friends

What are some challenges you faced along the way?
Owen As a team we had a few challenges to get money for the championships
Morris Not much, but more students to help out would be great. Get all the help we can get.
Kate Not being taken seriously in the environment because I’m a girl but I stand up for my self.

Anything else you would like us to know?
Owen It’s a fun experience .
Morris We’re the most creative team in MN .
Kate That really anybody could do it. Whatever you can do is needed by the team
