Robotics comes to LHS.


By Rob Alway, Editor-in-Chief.

LUDINGTON — The Ludington High School robotics team is only a couple months old, the team was formed in October. Currently there are about 16 students on the team, under the guidance of coaches Karen Shineldecker and Carrie Moeggenberg.

“We don’t really know everything we are supposed to know but we have all learned from each other,” Shineldecker said. “Robotics is a great opportunity for students because there are millions of dollars of college scholarships available. Plus they develop problem solving skills and will continue to learn those skills into their careers.”

Shineldecker said the team is always looking for community members to volunteer as mentors or to donate tools or money.

Team member Jordan Lake, a junior, said he joined the team because he had been interested in programming. “I programmed by myself all the time so I decided to bring my experience into the field and teach others to do it.”

His teammate, Myles Fritts, also a junior, said he also joined to improve his programming skills. “Plus, it looks great on a college application,” he added.
