Dream House: 

What have you learned about yourself as a mentor on the robotics team? 
I have learned to take on a few different perspectives on designing and engineering.

Why did you decide to be a mentor on the robotics team? 
As a former Hawaiian Kids student member, it is great to give back some of the knowledge I learned from my mentors and even some from my experiences in college.

What do you think the kids benefit from most in robotics?
I know the kids will benefit from the valuable hands-on learning experiences and the ability to apply math and science to design and construct a robot. Students learn skills that are difficult to learn in the classroom such as teamwork, commitment, critical thinking, problem solving, and perseverance. These are the type of skills that robotics have helped me with in my current post-secondary education.

What do you enjoy most about being a mentor on the robotics team? 
The application of engineering of course! The equations we learn from math and physics easily come to play.
