Duke Robotics Club is proud to be a mentor and founding partner of Durham Academy’s RoboSharks. In the RoboSharks’ pilot 2014-2015 season, they approached the Duke Robotics Club and hoped to form a strong mentorship with us. Duke Robotics Club graciously agreed and helped transform the RoboSharks into a force to be reckoned. Select Duke Robotics Club members joined the RoboSharks on a weekly basis and helped them strategize, build, and program the robot. This support helped the RoboSharks achieve success quickly and decisively. The RoboSharks claimed the Core Values award in the Regional Championships and the Best Robot Design in the State Championships. As a rookie team, they out-performed many veteran teams. Looking forward to the next season, the RoboSharks hope to extend their first year successes and become national contenders. Duke Robotics Club completely supports the RoboSharks and looks forward to once again helping them succeed.
