With +10yrs in Education I now spend as much time as possible geeking out with all things Robot.
I am also a volunteer Vex IQ Team Mentor (#24036S). In 2017 we won the MA/RI Regional title and qualified for Vex World Championships in Louisville.

But most importantly, the team have met some great teams from around the world and always have a great time competing.
