Involving the community with mentors

23williscw

One of the greatest additions to our team this year has been community mentors. We have had 2 parent volunteers that are involved in various areas of mechanics / construction / engineering come in and guide us as we plan, build, and program our robot. Through these mentors, we have gained a more diverse knowledge base and learned so much. They have helped us face many challenges from the planning through the testing and competing. We are so appreciative to our community mentors.

Just a Girl 

perhaps many of difficulties affect on us and our dreams but it teaches us how to go into the challenges that we hesitate to get in it, and forces us to fix the mistakes that we made before, and make us know some people we didn’t expect that they might be near to us.

I hope we achieve our goals, Not only to win the competition , But also not to separate, Because when I am with my team I feel happy without a reason and that means a lot to me.
