On March 15, members of the CRW team worked in conjunction with members of the UAH Space Hardware Club and a representative from the Air Force to present a workshop panel at the Huntsville Rocket City Regional for FIRST Robotics Competition. The workshop allowed for the robotics students to ask questions on what it is like to be in STEM fields. Questions ranged from how each person got started in their major or career to what kinds of classes should they take in high school (in terms of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, Governor’s School, etc.). The panelists responded to the questions harmoniously despite coming from different backgrounds and wanting to achieve different goals. The panelists gave their insights on how they chose their college or career path. Other information and advice the panelists gave advice on was getting involved with a student organization, not rushing through school, and making sure follow passions even if it’s outside of engineering or STEM. The students seemed to be receptive to the advice and suggestions that the panelists had to give.
