Go to Post To the best engineers, scientists, and thinkers, something that is "hard" isn't something to avoid; it is something that begs for us to prove that we can do it. STEM is built on the very idea of trying something, failing, and trying something different. Tanis jajabinx124

Go to Post But here's the beautiful thing about FIRST: you are supposed to make mistakes. RunawayEngineer DonRotolo

Go to Post Same as regrets in life: Learn from them. This is called "growth". DonRotolo bijan311
Go to Post A problematic dynamic and culture becomes apparent when failure persists for such a duration and reoccurs so frequently that students begin to accept it as the norm, and never learn the proper way to do things. sanddrag Ari423
Go to Post In an education culture that hinges on having the perfect grades and perfect SAT scores to get into the perfect colleges, I enjoy providing an environment where students are encouraged to test their own hypothesis, challenge their assumptions, and regularly fail.

Go to Post There is a problem getting girls interested in STEM. Swift, immediate action is required. Continuing to stay the course leads to disaster. Madison Karthik
Go to Post Avoid the impulse to shoot from the hip, and find out the full picture before deciding where you stand. gblake MechEng83
Go to Post When more STEM teams exist outside schools than in them, that will be one indication that a true cultural change has occurred. gblake Kevin Leonard
