Stephen Rosa | Class of 2020

Vice President

What motivated you to join robotics?

I enrolled in PLTW classes as a freshman and was interested in the STEM part of robotics. Also my cousin joined in the past.

How long have you been in robotics?

I’ve been a part of the team since I was a freshman, the 2016-2017 season.

Which sub-teams have you worked in?

I was part of programming and drive team last year and this year I’m on the CAD/game theory and drive team.

What are your goals for the current season?

My goals for this season are to change how people think of our team. I want us to be recognized as a team that is capable, committed, and talented. That is the goal I’m working towards.

How has FIRST brought you into the field of technology?

FIRST has introduced me to so many aspects and sections of the STEM field and helped me gain hands-on experience as well as teach me important lessons and values important to the STEM field.

How has the activity and team affected you?

When robotics is not in season, I feel idle. I love working on the robot and working with my teammates with whom I’ve created life-long friendships. I’ve also gained knowledge and experience that will help me in the STEM field and life.

What field do you plan to go into?

I plan to go into the STEM field, but I’m not sure specifically what for. I’m considering being a teacher, something with computer sciences, or something with mechanical engineering/design. This could change though.
