Ever since Bennett Patterson began attending Orcutt Academy, he has been working hard, struggling to keep his grades up, and working for the Spartatroniks team in the process.  I decided that I would interview him to see why he joined the Robotics team, and the answer was somewhat astonishing to me.

When I questioned Bennett about his motives for entering he said, “I joined Robotics on a hunch.  I figured I’d learn some new skills, and acquire some more knowledge in the ever expanding world of engineering. What struck me though, was the sense of community.  The realization that there are thousands of people out there that enjoy doing the same thing I do, it was astonishing, mind-blowing even, to think that so many people would come together, just to see a hunk of metal move around.  That’s the thing I love about robotics, it’s not about the robot.”

Good work, Bennett, and the best of luck to you and the robotics team in the world championship for all the team’s hard work!
