And a Singaporean school shared the inspiring story of Andrew, who won a programming competition with Tynker! He said his interest in robotics was sparked by how much he uses technology and robotics for own mobility.
Hats off to Andrew Petselis, a sec 1 student from SJI independent! He has brittle bone disease, Osteogenesis Imperfecta, but pulled off an amazing performance and won the Best Drone Performance in the Secondary school Category in the National Robotics Programming Competition today! . This is despite only having one week to learn how to use Tynker, the programming software, to program his drone! 😲 . Andrew’s interest in robotics was sparked by the fact that he relies on robotics to move around and it doesn’t require much physical strength to do programming. He also hopes to work in robotics in the future. 🚀🛰 . Said Andrew: “I wasn’t expecting to win. When they announced the second and third prizes, I thought I had no chance. Then they announced the first prize and I was so surprised.” . Awww… you certainly deserve it Andrew! And we are so happy for you! Congratulations 😁 #inspired
