The Loveland High Robotics team meets every Wednesday and Thursday after school in room 204/206. Please come check us out: we are always looking for more members. We will provide training in how to operate machinery and other tools to create small VEX robots in the Fall and our large FRC robot in late Winter-Spring. We also pride ourselves in our skilled programming team and our creative publicists. We have a job for everyone.
The Encyclopedia Galactica defines a robot as a mechanical apparatus designed to do the work of a man. The Marketing Division of the Sirius Cybernetics Corporation defines a robot as "Your plastic pal who's fun to be with."

The greatest danger for most of us is not that we aim too high and we miss it, but we aim too low and reach it.
