Kendall Hayes: After going through this program and building a robot and using math to pretty much engineer and create this really cool experience, I look at math in a new way, to kind of see it with more respect
Elijah Masias: I absolutely hated Math and Science, but once I started to do more robotics and look at the applicability the science and math makes, it started to get more interesting.
Angelica Vega: I definitely would encourage other students to join the SER program because you learn a lot through it and like I said you learn a lot that STEM is not just Math and Science, and it also pushes you to become a leader because, I for one, did not think that I would have to become a leader during the SER Program, but it does push you a lot. I got involved in STEM because of my friend. I would always hear her talk about how she found it so interesting to be able to build a robot and to be able to create something out of nothing. I decided to put myself out there and involve myself within the club.
