Academic Spotlight: Inspirational Words from Aspiring Female Robotics Engineers

Trish McCall

This past year we proudly sponsored three robotics teams, including NSU University School and American Heritage School in Florida, and Lakeside Middle School in Georgia. All three schools made it to their respective state competitions, with NSU University School competing at VEX Robotics Worlds and  American Heritage School competing at the FIRST® Championship . Every year since our academic program began, we are amazed by the talent and innovation these young technologists demonstrate through their hard work and dedication. It’s also impressive to see each school encouraging female participation in their robotics programs. We were especially proud to see Lakeside Middle School’s all-girls VEX Robotics team end their season with two awards. But perhaps more importantly, we were touched to hear these students talk about the friendships and memories they’ve made and a strong desire to follow their passion in STEM education.
