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!

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.

We are team 687D. The STEM superstar we chose is Hedy Lamarr. She is best known as an actress. She considered her beautiful face a curse because of all the heartbreak she felt because of it. But what people didn't know at the time is that she was a genius. She invented Frequency Hopping, which is used today in WIFI, Bluetooth, and GPS. George Antheil, a music composer best known at the time, worked with Hedy to figure out the technology and later made a patent.

We are team 114T, Lone Wolf Robotics. Our video is about Roberta Bondar, a STEM Superstar from our hometown of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. She is Canada's first female astronaut and the first neurologist in space. She is an inspiration for local students, especially females seeking a career in STEM.
When you first think of NASA’s history, the instant image probably appears in your mind is of rockets being launched or the men landing on the moon. Behind the beauty and wonders of space, there are brilliant, intelligent, and curious minds. One of these masterminds is Margaret Hamilton.
We are 90241D, Warren Warbots from Warren High School in Downey, California. Thanks for watching!
