Moorestown, NJ - For the second year in a row, Parts Life, Inc. has sponsored the Inner City Circuits robotics team as they competed in the Deep-South competition at North Burlington County Middle School. As part of the Parts Life, Inc. STEM initiative, the organization supports the Inner City Circuits in an effort to encourage students to develop their skills in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). The Inner City Circuits Team, based out of Camden NJ, was first started in 2014 as a means to expose students to robotics, engineering, and the various facets of STEM. When asked, students on the team expressed interest in pursuing careers in STEM such as engineering, manufacturing, and video game design. We had a quick Q&A with some of the students before they entered the tournament ring. Here"s what Alec had to say about his experience on the robotics team:
Q: How long have you been on the team? A: "I've been on the team for 3 years."
Q: What do you want to be when you grow up? A: "I want to be an architectural engineer, but I know no matter what I do I'm going to take what I learned here with me."
Q: What have you accomplished since we last saw you? A: "While working at Parts Life, I have learned about axel seals and the capabilities they need to have depending on their application. I've also learned how to enhance my critical thinking when encountering any problem."
