Learn, Succeed and Have Fun. And Inspire

Design team students learn, succeed and have fun while forming an organization that pulls together to tackle a complex challenge. A lesser-known task they perform is to pass on that passion and inspiration to younger students.

S&T’s Mars Rover Design Team helped support the FIRST World Championship Competition in St Louis last weekend. FIRST, which stands for For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, is an international program that does just what its name says; gets students involved with technological problem solving in a team environment.

S&T freshman and Mars Rover team member Brianna DeGroot, reflects that inspiration in this television report.
