I am continually impressed by the creativity, technical abilities and attitude of the robotics students, both in the classroom and the robotics clubs. I am an engineer in the field of robotics a also a STEM mentor. The robotics students and club members gain experience solving the same types of technical challenges as professional engineers. It is exciting to help guide these future engineers and scientists.
