REC Foundation STEM Educational Video Challenge
Who is your STEM Superstar? There are countless heroes and heroines in STEM who amaze and inspire us, innovators and creative thinkers who stand out from the crowd as brave leaders in their fields. For this year’s educational video challenge, pick a pioneer in Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics and teach us about her/him. This person can be current or historical, and must have (or is having) a significant impact on advancing STEM fields. Your STEM superstar may be an inventor, researcher, scientist, experimenter, tester of boundaries, writer, engineer, mathematician, or anything in between! And to keep learning interesting and engaging, we encourage you to dress in costume, present a living diorama, perform a skit, teach a virtual classroom, or any method that appeals to an audience of your peers.
For this year's REC Foundation STEM Educational Video Challenge, we've decided to talk about Margaret Hamilton, an inspiration to all on our team! Not only was she an exceptional developer, but she's went against norms and actually was the one who inspired our programmer to start programming. Being large fans of Margaret Hamilton, it's only fitting for her to be our STEM superstar with her great achievements. From software engineering to equality within the STEM work space, we hope to become as accomplished as she is!

For this video, we choose as our hero DENNIS RITCHIE, who is one of the most important characters in the modern technological world.
He is the creator of the programming language "C".
It's our first year in the competition, where what we liked most was the programming.
It is the basic and the DNA of all...
We are Team 1666R, Renegade Robotics, and this is our submission to the STEM Educational Video Challenge. Our video is about Alfred Nobel, the man who invented dynamite as well as created the Nobel Prize. He is our STEM Superstar because of how he inspires scientists around the world to work hard to this day and achieve their biggest dreams.
