FIRST Robotics - Team 687
I was very fortunate to have had the opportunity to explore engineering during high school through the FIRST Robotics Program. Throughout my four years, I competed in VEX Robotics Competitions for 2 years, FIRST Tech Challenges for 1 year, and FIRST Robotics Challenges for 2 years. Through the robotics program, I developed technical skills such as applications of the engineering design process, analytical thinking, computer-aided design, basic mechanics, and manufacturing processes. I also developed leadership and organizational skills that made me an effective team member and leader through collaborating on multiple fast-paced projects. A sample of some of the projects that I was involved in during my four years is shown below.
