What has participating in WRO done for you?
Brian says: WRO gives him a platform to present our ideas and creations.
Jason says: WRO allows us to learn new and more advanced robotic topics that I wouldn't normally learn.
Describe your favorite WRO moment:
Brian says: The food trucks in Costa Rica... When you are performing at a high level, then realize you've gone several hours past meals, the food trucks hit the spot.
Jason says: Meeting new people at Internationals with similar drive, motivation, and interest in robotics.
What are you looking forward to in Thailand?
