Become a member
The Glitch 2.0 team is made up of many sub-teams. Whether a member wants to learn machining in Fabrication, C++ in Programming, or pneumatics in Electrical, everyone is welcome regardless of skill level. Additionally, members less interested in robot building can work in Glitch's extremely important Operations sub-team.
Become a mentor
Adult mentors are vital to the Glitch 2.0 team. Mentors teach members important skills in their fields of expertise, as well as being role models for the next generation of scientists. Mentors help manage the sub-teams, keep members on task, and ensure safety while building the robot.
Become a sponsor
Donating to Glitch ensures that the team stays free and accessible to all of its members. Glitch's sponsors are integral to its function and create a huge impact on the team and its ability to benefit the community. Donations of any size are valued, and because Glitch 2.0 is a club at Asheville High School, donations are tax deductible.
