Robotics Alliance Project Hosts Fremont High School Tech Challenge Team Visit

The Robotics Alliance Project hosted several members from the For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Tech Challenge (FTC) team 5773 on July 18th. FTC team members asked many questions about group work and the technical skillsets required to perform it. Several Robotics Alliance Project group members described how they got started in their careers, what their interests were in college, and what their current roles are in the Division. In addition, group members also gave the FTC team a tour of the Systems Health, Analytics, Resilience, and Physics-modeling (SHARP) Lab and, particularly, of the propellant-loading valve testbed that is currently being utilized by a summer intern for diagnostics and prognostics research.

BACKGROUND: FTC Team 5773 Ink and Metal from American High School in Fremont, California, contacted Center Director Dr. Eugene Tu via e-mail to request a visit to discuss their accomplishments over the past year and to hear about his job on a daily basis. This request was forwarded to the Robotics Alliance Project in Code TI.
