In addition to fostering interest in physics, computer science, and programming, the Club promotes teamwork and communication skills. Each individual contributes some range of leadership, project management, mechanical awareness, technological savvy, and, of course, problem solving skills to his or her team. The Club provides an opportunity to bring students together to explore and to practice these vital skills regularly. Baca anticipates that participation will continue to grow over the next few years. As the Club grows, he hopes to extend not only the number of teams composed of high school students but also to expand the Club to include middle school students as well.
Foundation 51 is pleased to have been able to help enrich the intellectual and personal growth of a number of students at Greely High School outside the classroom with this fun and innovative project. We thank Andrew for his leadership and commitment.
