Favorite Robotics Quote
"At bottom, robotics is about us. It is the discipline of emulating our lives, of wondering how we work."
-ROD GRUPEN, Discover Magazine, June 2008
"During robotics you will make something, take it apart, reassemble it, take it apart again, put it together, and still find problems with it. And that's the beauty of robotics. You're always improving." -Aakash Patel
Favorite Robotics Moment
Winning the peachtree regional, in 2012 the feeling of being part of such an amazing accomplishment was amazing, it always feels like all the hard work we do is worth it when I see the robot work, but this was like the icing on the cake of a superb sophomore year.
