Ferradermis to Host Second Annual Boot Camp for New Members August 3 – 10

Whitewater High School’s FIRST Robotics Team Ferradermis will be hosting their second annual Robotics Boot Camp for new members from Saturday, August 3, through Saturday, August 10, 2019. Students will learn from veteran members and adult mentors about the FIRST Robotics program, the team, and all of the skills that are used in building a robot. Participants will experience a taste of CAD, electrical work, mechanical work, programming, and prototyping along with building teamwork and communication skills. Boot Camp is a great way for students to get their feet wet and decide what parts of the team they would be interested in learning more about.

All current and incoming Whitewater High School students are invited to experience this free opportunity. Please reserve your spot by emailing Laura Masbruch at lmasbruch@wwusd.org by the end of July.

All meetings will take place at Whitewater High School in rooms 305 and 306. The full schedule of Boot Camp sessions is below. We ask that participants be able to attend a majority of the sessions; students not attending Boot Camp will still have an opportunity to join the team in the fall.

Saturday, August 3, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
Monday, August 5, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Tuesday, August 6, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Thursday, August 8, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Friday, August 9, 5:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Saturday, August 10, 8:00 am – 4:00 pm
