Since our goals are multi-faceted and highly multidisciplinary, we are always looking for new members from every major. Feel free to drop in and find out more about what’s going on, but be sure to email the leader of the team your interested in before hand for the best date and time.
Info For New Members
Dues & Basics
To find out more about the teams and sign up, you should first attend a general meeting (announced on the main page). Also, it would help to do some research into what you want to do with the RoboJackets by browsing this site and/or contacting the leader of the team in which you are interested. You should also join the e-mail lists linked from each team’s page. This way you will be in the loop for whatever the RoboJackets are doing. Please bring dues ($100 for a year or $55 for a semester) to one of the first few project meetings after you have signed up, or pay online through https://my.robojackets.org.
As a member of the RoboJackets you are required to conduct yourself in a manner that will reflect well on the team. This applies mostly to conduct in the shop (where we work) and at competitions; you never know who is paying attention to what you are doing.
Also, if you are involved in a project, your attendance is very important for the project meetings, and tasks that you take on. You are a student first, however, so don’t be afraid to say that you can’t take on a task, but don’t be afraid to challenge yourself either.
Our general email list is hosted on Georgia Tech’s list server and can be found at https://lists.gatech.edu/sympa/info/robojackets-general. Subscribe to that list to receive updates and notifications of other organization-wide activities.
You may subscribe to our general calendar feed located at https://robojackets.org/calendar/ with your favorite calendar software (Sunbird, Google Calendar, etc). Each team also has their own feed posted on their page.
RoboJackets is open to members of all majors, regardless of previous engineering or robotics experience. To ensure everyone is capable of contributing, we hold training sessions in the fall for the Mechanical, Electrical, and Software disciplines. These sessions cover the basics of each discipline and supplement the experience at team meetings. Please consult the calendar for training session schedules.
Email one of our officers for more information on joining us, or just come to any of our meetings (indicated on the calendar). We’d love to have you!
