How do freshmen get involved in robotics?
Dr. Rob Behm

The best way for freshmen to get involved is by enrolling in the zero hour (after school) class, Introduction to Competitive Robotics. 

During the first semester, students meet one day per week and learn the basics of robotics. In second semester, they will get credit for being a team member on DuRT (De Smet Robotics Team) and compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition. 

Students can still join DuRT, even if they do not take the zero hour class.
