High 5 4 Kids: Gillrick Stroman

AUGUSTA, GA (WFXG) -  Schofield Middle School 8th grader Gillrick Stroman is on the Robotics Team at Aiken High School. He one day dreams of being an engineer.

“I think it would be fun to work out aerodynamics for certain vehicles,” Gillrick said.

This is his first year on the robotics team, but he's learning a lot already.

“Whenever it doesn't work, you have to take it apart and try again,” Gillrick said. “It kind of gets a little frustrating [but] if you fail the first time, it might take a lot more tries, but eventually you'll get there.”

Gillrick and the team have been working on the robot since last fall. The stakes are high for what they hope that robot will do at an upcoming competition.

“The game is set up to where we have to get balls into a tube,” he said. “We have to be able to move that tube around with the robot.”

As for mom Bridgett, she said Gillrick is getting 100% in math right now and she knows his future is bright.

“We have no doubt that Gillrick can achieve whatever he sets his heart to,” she said.

The competition is in March and Gillrick says the robot should be done sometime this month.
