This past summer I volunteered as a counselor at the Milton Robotics summer camp for kids from grades one through eight. My job was to assist and watch over the kids as they worked on their camp projects. That year, their camp projects were mini robot arms about one foot in length. I expected to have a boring experience during which I would have to constantly teach a group of kids how to do simple tasks such as which direction to turn a screwdriver in order to tighten a screw. Fortunately, I was proven wrong. I felt a rush of relief and shock when I figured out that the camp taught me just as much as I taught the kids. Little did I expect, over the next five days, I would be discovering my passion for my intended major. Going into the summer camp, my mind was far from thinking about college majors. However, the next few days would open my mind. After three days of working with the kids, a couple campers ran into some technical issues in which their camp projects were rendered dysfunctional and unfixable. When I first heard about their situation, my heart sunk to the bottom of my rib cage; I believed in helping people in need no matter what it took. I rushed to the head counselor and asked if there was any way to repair the robots. I was told that the repairs would just take too long and that they needed more time to get it repaired for the camper showcase the following day. As soon as I recognized the hope we had, I sat down and got to work. With every piece I took apart and put back together, I could feel adrenaline coursing through my veins. Only a few minutes in, I realized that I love working on machines and I love problem solving. I was able to finish
In my high school career, the most interesting course I have taken is AP English Literature and Composition during my Junior year. Being a higher-level course, this class challenged me as a reader, a writer, and a thinker. While we read similar novels to other students around the country, such as The Great Gatsby, Othello, and In The Time of the Butterflies, the way my instructor taught us to apply the readings and lessons to everyday life seemed out-of-the-ordinary.

way to improve our hand eye coordination even at his age. My cousin is also medical student, who usually comes across the surgeries in which they have to use robotic arms. I see him playing videogames a lot and when I ask him the reason to play video games he replies that their professors recommends playing video games to become better at robotic surgeries.
The second benefit of the video games is speeding up one’s reaction time. studies have shown that playing video games especially shooter games…
An Approach on Machine Intelligence
Science fiction is a perceptual gateway, allowing us to view extreme contexts in a familiar medium. Perhaps the most overlooked application of this is machine intelligence, something that could become a very real issue soon enough. With fields such as cybernetics and artificial intelligence making leaps and bounds as never seen before, I am sure we can both agree that it is time to consider these new possibilities. Possibilities which only become an ethical…

Standardized Testing Gets an ‘F’
Standardized testing seems pretty harmless. Straightforward, inexpensive, neat, fair. But students have grown so accustomed to taking multiple-choice tests to prove themselves that people don’t bother to question the tests’ validity. In truth, these tests are meritocratic tools that affect us all, from the day we enter kindergarten to when we might apply for college or a job. It is even a pervasive influence…
The aim of this assignment is to prepare a market plan for a new computer and robotic racing game called an “Anki Drive”. This product is currently lunched by a robotics business called Anki. The market plan is required by the business to find out the best way to launch and market the new product. Anki Drive is a new game called Battle, artificial intelligence (Al) and robotics. A player can hold the cars by hand and the track rolls out at his/her comfy area floor. This game only…

The desegregation of sports introduced diversity on the playing fields; however the roles were clearly defined on racial lines. As Coakley tells us, “Even the positions played by blacks and whites fit patterns shaped by racial ideology.” He continues by stating, “Blacks were expected to be faster and more physically gifted playing positions in the outfield in baseball and defensive backs in football. Quarterback…
