So for the first time ever team 997 Spartan Robotics won the Engineering Inspiration award. I could not be prouder of them. It is an award that while we have been doing good work I never expected use to win due to the high level of saturation of STEM due to us being less than two miles for Oregon State University.
Some of the students (and I think the FRC community) have called the award Chairman’s light. Would that be an accurate assessment of the award?
Over the seven years I have been in FRC the understand I had developed of EI was that it shared some aspects of CA but EI was more focused on STEM education where as CA had a community service aspect to it. Would that be accurate?
