At RoboKai we have great coaches who love working with members to explore their creativity and passion for robotics. One of our coaches is Coach Cameron, who joined the staff in March 2021. We're doing a "10 Questions" series so that members and parents can get to know our staff better. Coach Cameron goes first.
Cameron first noticed RoboKai on his way home from Battlegrounds, across the parking lot, where he plays Warhammer with friends. Intrigued by the name, he looked us up on his phone, and when he saw we were a robotics club, he was immediately interested. He is a fan of the "Battlebots" television series, and had recently begun working on a combat robot of his own. He reached out to club owner, Jason McGarvey, to find out if there were any job opportunities. Coach Jason was so impressed with Cameron's ambition and enthusiasm for robotics, he hired him as our first assistant coach.
Over the past year, Coach Cameron has brought a ton of positive energy to the club, making sure every member feels welcome and has fun, whether they are building crazy contraptions or joining a battle royale.
We love having Coach Cameron on the RoboKai team, and we hope you'll enjoy getting to know him better.
