The words spoken by William Pollard in 1828 continue to hold truth and meaning for FRC Team 3324. His sentament can be seen through our work as a team, in our school, and in the community. For example, the methods of the past may not apply today, therefore, the Metrobots have embraced and spread the innovation taught by FIRST to their community and beyond. This is demonstrated through contemporary learning in a world where technology is ever-advancing.... To this team, success is defined through positive actions both on and off the field that impact our school and the community. We accomplish this by helping those in need and incorporating STEM into the everyday lives of those they encounter, such as FLL, fundraisers, and volunteering. …show more content…
Similarly, robotics is a natural extension of what students are already practicing through the foundation that Metro provides. In an attempt to promote FIRST and innovation into the community, the Metrobots focus on the use of their fabrication lab. In addition to common tools, the Metrobot lab includes a CNC machine and three 3D printers. This broad selection allows the team to produce plastic, aluminum, and wood products which are used to assist the team in promoting FIRST. Additionally, the Metrobots utilize their resources to practice gracious professionalism and collaboration. 3324 offers other teams free manufacturing services and produces awards for off-season robotics events, including the competition annually directed by CORI, or Central Ohio Robotics Initiative. Furthermore, the Metrobots manage several social networking accounts including Twitter, Facebook, Etsy, and Inventables,which allow them to not only partner with FIRST teams, but to reach out to those unaquanited with the program. Through the use of Twitter and Facebook, the team is able to engage viewers with regular updates describing the advancements and achievements of the team whereas Etsy and Inventables serve as outlets to emphasize the ideals of FIRST through showcasing the team's fabricated items. Utilizing the connection that social networking

I thought it was incredible to see the great deal of valuable data, resources, and tools we have at our disposal as students at Ross, and the way that we have the potential to create revolutionary change if we were able to adequately apply and utilize this information. After viewing this, we transitioned to talking about information systems and digital systems. I thought it was quite interesting how we were able to see the factors that build into creating a system and how its a thorough collections of individuals working to improve the business. We were able to segway into the impact these technologies are having on organizing overall. Some of the technologies we overviewed that are leading in the fourth industrial age are cloud computing, microservices, APIs and artificial intelligence. I have a general familliarity with most of these topics since I’ve tried using all of them for my own personal desires such as trying to make Twitter bots and storing my data. One of the most interesting parts of today’s lecture though, was Moore’s law. It was incredible to see how unbelievably fast technology is changing, and almost outright ridiculous that computing power is doubling every year. The discussion on the idea of teacher’s essentially acting like actors was an interesting notion, especially considering how this could revolutionize education. I personally think it's certainly something that should be tested, especially since it could make the class significantly more engaging for students. The last concept we touched upon was the funding of IT systems. I was somewhat iffy on these, and hope we can expand more on these since the funding seems incredibly
I am now the president of our club and the manager of Wolverine Computer. Not only do I direct our shop's efforts to raise funding for our program and for student certification tests, but I also direct Wolverine Computer's training program. I organize opportunities for students to obtain hands-on, real-world practice in an environment that mimics the IT field realistically. Enabling students to receive work experience while still in high school is crucial to preparing students for a career in technology. In addition to certifications and direct work experience, the program also provides high school students opportunities to practice skills that are certainly needed in the technology field. This includes customer service, public interaction, and teamwork skills while allowing students to demonstrate a professional work ethic. The program and our SkillsUSA club have many facets that require great patience and skill to manage. Our SkillsUSA club has over 60 members and actively promotes IT and STEM at our school. Concurrently, students at Wolverine Computer have put in nearly 200 hours of community service in the fall 2016 semester. The proceeds from this community service have helped dozens of students become IT Fundamentals or A+ CompTIA certified and have given much-needed opportunities to students in La
The United States is one of the leading nations in innovation, education, and quality of life.It is essential that its people be well educated problem solvers who are adequately prepared to make a “difference in the world(Roth)” and be able to project the “future results(Roth)” so that they might be able to further our nation. The U.S currently ranks as number fourteen in the world of education, leaving a large amount of room for improvement, and “given the pace of technological and societal
As JROTC approaches its one hundredth year birthday, its purpose of “Motivating young people to become better citizens” has not changed; however, there are many aspects of it that changed and can be changed. The past showed where the program was built up, how it was built up and how it was back then. In the present, JROTC consist of how it was in the past and how it has improved and how it is compared to the past. The future will be when JROTC will keep building off of the past and the present which then turns into the past.
Dating back to the dawn of the Space Race, calls to improve young people’s mastery of the academic material undergirding U.S. technological strength have been a recurrent refrain in American education.
Learning is by far the most valuable tool today. Knowledge is the stepping stone that allows people to excel beyond their previous circumstances and aim for greatness. As President of my school’s Science National Honor Society, I helped start a local outreach to an elementary school called Innovation Charter two years ago; this year, we received a grant from the American Chemical Society to fund our project, allowing us to impact the school even more than last year. Innovation Charter is full of students with low socioeconomic statuses, so our goal is to bring quality education to children who aren’t afforded those benefits. While at the school, we perform a myriad of fun and interactive science experiments and explain the scientific principle
The mission of the California Institute of Technology is to grow human learning and advantage society through examination coordinated with instruction. We examine the most difficult, central issues in science and innovation in a uniquely collegial, interdisciplinary environment,
The Capstone Project that our team is assigned is Veolia and the impact of 111d and RGGI. The evaluation of Veolia indicates that there main significant aspect is air pollution. The air pollution is specific to CO2 and greenhouse gases. Air pollution is generated from the production of steam and electricity from the combustion of natural gas. The facility equipment is at 80% efficiency. Therefore, improvements to the operation for efficiency currently does not having any opportunities. The reduction to CO2 and greenhouse gases can only occur for reducing the production of steam and electricity or adding technology to capture and convert CO2 into usable products. In addition, the facility does produce greenhouse gases from the operation of mobile equipment which range from trucks and cars to other equipment required to maintain and operate the facility.
PLTW (Project Lead The Way) is the leading provider of rigorous and innovative Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics education curricular programs used in middle and high schools across the U.S. New Mexico State University’s College of Engineering has served as the NM PLTW Affiliate since 2006. As the state affiliate, NMSU oversees the PLTW Summer Core Teacher Training programs, held specifically to train PLTW teachers from across the state in this highly effective curriculum. NMSU also hosts the annual NM PLTW Teacher Conference each fall. The PI plans to host one training session per year for the teachers to introduce the low-power devices developed in this proposal. The PI also plans to visit the middle school classroom once per year to demo these devices.
Georgia Tech nurtures innovation and creativity. As I learn more about its brilliant research programs led by great professors, I definitely wish to join them. I want to attend Georgia Tech because it is closely aligned with my interests and aspirations. I like learning from diverse subjects and I believe that interdisciplinary research will help connect esoteric knowledge and technology with people’s lives. Just like Professor Gil Weinberg at Georgia Tech, who designed a sophisticated robotic arm to assist musicians in playing the drum in three arms,
John Maeda is an American executive, programmer, and designer who is one of the leaders of the movement to transform STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) in the field of education. The primary goal of STEAM is to encourage students to use elements of design to come up with unique and creative solutions to problems that they may face. In a 2012 interview with the Huffington Post Maeda Describes the STEAM movement using the mp3 player as an example; in the interview, he states “Extending STEM to STEAM by adding Art makes sense, because STEM by itself is extremely powerful. Its scale is amazing. But that alone doesn’t create warmth and humanity and connection. For instance, a thing like an MP3 Player is a STEM technology. But until Apple came along, it didn’t become desirable. It was a STEAM technology that made it a part of our everyday lives.” (Roach). Maeda’s person background along with his dedication to the STEAM movement is the primary reason why I chose to write this document about him.
C.B. presented to the hospital and was quickly diagnosed with an acute MI, or heart attack. MIs are typically characterized by the death of the myocardial tissues due to a significant decrease in the supply of oxygen to the heart. The heart is composed of two primary systems: the pump and the electrical system. The heart’s electrical system is divided into three main components: the sinoatrial node in the right atrium, the atrioventricular node in the main septum close to the tricuspid valve, and the Perkinje fibers found on the walls of the ventricles. Important aspects of MIs are whether or not they are a STEMI or a NSTEMI, which is a non-ST-elevation myocardial infarction. STEMIs generally occur as a result of the complete blockage of an artery. NSTEMIs are considered less severe
As a mentor of the first-year elementary school FIRST Lego League (FLL) Robotics Team, the Bronco Bots, working with younger students was sometimes difficult. I was able to overcome those difficulties, however, by guiding the students through a process of collaboration. While designing and prototyping the Lego Mindstorms robot, many students jumped straight into building without much knowledge about the rules of the game, Trash Trek. While they were able to quickly put together three separate drivetrains, I realized that many did not have the game’s rulebook well-memorized to construct subsystems. As a result, I created a number of steps to help the students complete the robot on-time. Through the process of recognizing the problem, researching
As a way of illustration, MakerBot was established in 2009 with a vision to empower hundreds of thousands of customers to use open-source platform to power 3D printing and by 2012, more than 10,000 units of the company’s products had been shipped. While supplying units as much as 10,000 is enough compelling reason to believe that MakerBot has the capacity to enter a new market or break even in a new technological frontier, the company’s further performances laid
