Why is service important?
Service is valuable to us because we learn to be teachers, mentors, and support systems for young people emerging in robotics. By doing this service, we are influencing future generations of engineers by motivating them to set goals for themselves and teaching them about working as a team, solving problems, and strategizing along with general engineering skills.
What have we learned from serving our community?
Volunteering for VEX IQ has improved our leadership skills significantly. This experience has challenged us to administrate conversations with young engineers and assist them in creating new ideas and strategies. We have been able to enhance our discussion abilities by encouraging the students to communicate with each other and analyze their strengths and weaknesses after each match.
