Being raised in a very STEM-centric family, I began to realize the importance of STEM at an early age from spending time with my parents during school breaks. My mother is a professor of electrical engineering at Georgia Tech and my father is a civil engineer who works for Georgia Power. I played around with Scratch and small robots when I was very young, spending a lot of time at Georgia Tech. What we, humans, can create fascinates me. I
We held a camp for the Jr. Titans that ran in July. I loved seeing how happy these kids are learning and playing a new sport. They were all so eager to learn and play, even if they were not able to do the thing they were learning. This not only brought the Jr. Titans together but it
Another very important field robots play in is the military. Today, more than ever, soldiers’ lives are being spared because of the robotic soldiers that are stepping in and doing the dangerous jobs that could mean life or death. The Army, Marines, Navy, and the Air Force are all moving towards robotic
I remember stepping through the door into the robotics room, I didn't know what I was getting into and what impact it would have on my life. Robotics became my life for the next 4 years, constantly spending every moment of my free time investing it in robotics. I found my passion; to learn, with a desire to make the team better by passing my knowledge down to them. Robotics taught me countless valuable lessons and skills that shaped my life. Every day I acquired new skills and techniques to improve the robot, exponentially increasing my comprehension of engineering. Learning how to use tools, create mechanisms, and basic fundamentals of engineering; I began to work up the ranks of the team. Starting once as a clueless freshman I earned the
Through the Naval Academy’s elite engineering degree program along with my interest in drones and Robotics Engineering, I feel I will advance my skills to my best ability in these fields. Furthermore, the leadership program of the Naval Academy
My acceptance into the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) program became one of my greatest experiences at North County High School. Throughout my STEM classes, I had learned to think more critically and creatively. STEM required us to collaborate to solve problems. This collaboration taught me proper communication and strong leadership skills which I utilized effectively during summer bridge projects and the community challenge projects that we did each year. One of the most significant community challenge projects that I did with a partner was design and print, using a 3-D printer provided from my school to create a cookie cutting prototype that helped modernize the production of cookies for a local bakery owner. Through
I was too young to compete, and by the time I was old enough, my family had relocated to Georgia. Although my opportunity was stifled, my passion for STEM was not. While in middle school, I seized the chance to apply to a STEM magnet school and was accepted. Today I am grateful for my experience as I’ve taken advanced math and science courses that will prepare me for college. I also was Vice President of my school’s Science Club and member of the Science Olympiad Team. I learned about community opportunities and different applications of science through these extracurriculars. Through Science Club, I led and performed experiments for elementary and Special Education students interested in STEM at outreach events and science fairs. In Science Olympiad, I participated in Technical Problem Solving and Compound Machines events. These events gave me a glimpse at mechanical engineering as I built devices with my partner, and how to think creatively and logically, which are key in the science
On my visit to the Dunwoody campus, I could not wait to look around. I've been attending the Math and Science Academy for seven years. Even before my sixth grade year, I have always enjoyed constructing things, playing with building blocks, and making little robots. On the night of my sixth grade orientation, I visited my school to be and was surprised when I walked in the front door. I was greeted by an eight foot tall robot made by high school students. They were part of the program called For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST). I
While participating in the robotics competitions, I discovered my passion for robotics. Even after the initial team separated, I continued helping new members, based on my previous experience and new-found knowledge. In the future, I want to continue the legacy my grandmother and mother have given me and continue to strive for excellence, helping my country and the rest of the world by the hand of technology and
I was at the time on a robotics team which competed in the First Tech Challenge or FTC in short. I this particular year the competition's theme was bowled over. When I was at the shop I felt that I had the strength and efficiency of ten men. When I was part of the team I learned a countless number of skills such as using heavy machinery and programming in C. I loved using power tools in order to shape materials in any way that I wanted to. Every time that I accomplished a mission or goal Robots inspired me to push myself to the limits when I was
The focus of this paper will be to describe the experience I have had with a good boss. For the past five years, I have had the opportunity to help coach a high school baseball team. My boss at this job is the sports director at the high school. This paper will examine how Mr. brown exhibits the correct values and leadership for his position.
A challenging new opportunity presented itself as Pat became the STEM instructor for Davidson County’s newest, most innovative middle school, Oak Grove. While she Incorporated her passion for driving students to reach their maximum potential she became a leader in the teaching community as the EXCEL (encourage, excellence, character, enthusiasm and leadership) sponsor for our PBIS team, a sponsor for the Robotics Team, and promoted numerous fundraisers throughout the entire school year for the general purpose of extending educational opportunities for all the students at Oak
Interest towards engineering was inspired through her involvement with the Robotics Team. Jasmin served as the captain of the Steampunk Penguins for The Mary Louis Academy Robotics Team her senior year of high school. The Steampunk Penguins mostly focused on competing in the First Robotics Competition. Each year the team would work together to build a robot to fit the guidelines of the completion. The team provided Jasmin with an insight on teamwork, leadership skills, and communication skills.
An aspect of the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) organization, is that the teams must contribute to their community. The team has spread FIRST to all of the major middle schools and afterschool programs in the district. This wide range of service has allowed me to help the children in the community and the students on the Choctaw High School Robotics Team. I have been capable of teaching the students new ways of building their robots and helping them through their programs. FIRST embodies the vision of community rather than just competing with robots. The organization wants us to spread Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) to anyone who wants to listen, and robotics has allowed me to help as well.
Imagine if you would not need to help Mom and Dad, carrying stuff for them or cleaning up after them! You can have a robot help you with your daily activities such as cleaning your room, washing your car, and even wiping for you once you are done using the bathroom. A robot is a machine designed to complete or carry out multiple tasks when programmed to do so. Robots play a huge role in discovery, such as Mars Curiosity Rover, that is used to observe Mar’s surface and environment. We have used Robots to study the moons surface to see what it is like and to learn more about space. We use robots today in military by using them to disarm bombs and find enemy locations. Robots will have a positive impact on our future, because robots will help us to discover more in the ocean and space, help us save lives, and aid in the military.
