Kids in Robotics are labelled as "nerds" and "geeks" and losers and stuff like that. Honestly NO ONE wants to be called that, or even labelled that. I did not even know about the existence of our team since this year (beginning of the school year) after I joined AP Comp Sci. And after I joined, I fell in love, despite the fact that it really is filled with people I would not personally hang out with outside the club, but there are some real cool kids on the team. I joined to get "real life" experience out side my house (Im a programmer) and I can say that I made a great decision. Really people have the stereotype that I am a "Dumb Asian", Im on the Football team, and the Track Team and I'm a gym rat, and I can say that I don't get the best grades, but I am smart, just lazy. People see me and think "Holy Crap hes a big Asian" and don't ever think I program:ahh: They get surprised when I tell them how old I really am and that I program...

If 10 months is old, then I'm ancient!

Wonderful. I wanted to reply to this thread but then I saw that Katie had referred to an older thread that is almost the same so I didn't know which to reply in. I decided to read the old thread where I found a link to a paper with more stories, so I started to read those. The stories in the paper were so iteresting that I read them all and now it is so late I don't have time to reply and still don't know which thread to reply to.

Anyway, if this thread sounds interesting I suggest reading the thread Katie mentioned and the paper.
