Its a new school year so I, Brianna Mariotti, decided to do something new: join robotics. Not only am I trying something new, but so is the robotics team itself, which happens to be this very blog. I've already realized that robotics is so much more than building a robot. I was told this multiple times before I even joined, but I couldn't wrap my head around how in a club titled "robotics" only a fraction of the time is donated to the robot itself. There's so much more than what's seen from the external point of view, even more than the sub-teams that aren't thought of as much. So, this is where this blog comes in; to share the innermost layer of Team 399, being the students ourselves.
