I have participated in robotics as a teacher and mentor for 10 years. During this time my teams have won two FIRST Regional Championships and traveled to the FIRST World Championship six times. In the last year, I (along with some of my former students) have started a robotics blog. My interest in robotics has mostly to do with the effect that robotics has on students's learning and motivation.
