Race Engineer

Racing teams consist of more than just great drivers – team members like the Race Engineer play important roles on winning teams. The Race Engineer is responsible for things like collecting and analyzing data to help the vehicle and driver optimize their performance in the race. Race Engineers have to consider things like the best tires for racetrack conditions, so that the racing team can be set up for success before and during the race. Just like you experimented and tested tires on your robot in this Unit, Race Engineers conduct similar testing with cars on racetracks.  

Electro-mechanical Technician

There are a wide variety of hands-on careers within industrial environments. Electro-mechanical technicians work with electronic and computer-controlled mechanical systems to install, test, repair, or upgrade system components. From aerospace to energy, computer and communications equipment to plastics manufacturing, electro-mechanical technicians play an important role in keeping systems functioning effectively and efficiently. Just as you modified code to display colors on the Brain screen and added the Bumper Switch to your robot to make it function better in Team Freeze Tag, electro-mechanical technicians employ similar skills to get their jobs done each day.
