“I think my time at InTech was so helpful because it is such a small school. I feel that I was able to make a difference there, especially in the robotics program. FIRST was especially influential because it helped me learn practical engineering, and understanding the design process from concept all the way through to a completed design. While this may seem pretty basic, I have met way too many engineering students that have no idea of the real world limitations of design and engineering because they have never actually tightened a bolt or made a part on their own, and have no real-world understanding of manufacturing processes or what a 0.004″ fit actually means. Because of this experience, FIRST is about the only high school thing that is reasonable to keep on your resume through college, and has given me a real leg up!”
