The Berkeley Institute Bridge Club
Bridge is a partnership game. Trust, communication and patience are the essential attributes of winning at bridge. For a student, the strategy part teaches them math, logic, and interpretive skills. The partnership part teaches them to respect and trust their partner.
It's an elegant game, full of strategy and tactics. It's part science, part math, part logic, part reason. But a huge component of bridge is also very human. This melding of the former with the latter is what sets bridge apart, not only from other card games, but also from board games like chess. While computers can now routinely beat all but a handful of chess grandmasters, they can't come close to outplaying the world's finest bridge players. Why is this? Because computers can understand math, but they can't understand people.
The robotics club is a multidisciplinary student-run group which resides in the Business and Information Technology Department of the Berkeley Institute. Each academic year the club is mentored by Mr. Duval Robinson and supported by Mr. Steve Lawrence with the focus being theory, design, build, and programming of robotic systems. Every year, our goal is to compete in the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) Challenges offering Bermudian students the opportunity to design their own ROVs, and then deploy their self-built ROVs in underwater missions alongside their peers.
