WildCat5e is recruiting new team members for the 2019-2020 season.
We are looking for students who are interested in either the business side of our team or the engineering side (or both.) That means we need students who want to do the things normally associated with robots: engineering, CAD, building, wiring, and programming, and we also need students with other interests such as marketing, writing, fundraising, community service, photography, videography, and social media.
We hope you'll consider joining us for another exciting season!
To join the team, please fill out this application:
Team members fill one or more roles to do a wide variety of business and engineering activities.
