Light-bulbs came on. Kids began to understand what they needed to learn. They better understood what their goals need to be in school, what they need to study to go into a particular profession.
We sponsored a robotics competition this past year and the really cool thing is not only do participants learn a lot, technically, about how to build a robot, how a robot functions, how you might get the most out of it, but there’s also a big teamwork element. The competition is based upon solving a real-world problem. We tried to help them understand this is exactly the kind of thing that you would be doing if you came to this company. Of course, slightly different situations, but these are exactly the kinds of procedures and things that you need to learn to do this for a living.
There were kids there that knew absolutely nothing about robotics in the beginning, but they found the role they could play, they found something they could get interested in, and hopefully they latch on and come work for us one day. We, as a business, have to work alongside education here in Huntsville to help kids be better prepared.
