- Mar 14, 2017RIT Formula team is a hit with second graders!!
Letter from a Grateful Teacher:
It isn't always easy to coordinate a project like this but Jon did it with ease! He was prompt in replying to my emails, answering questions, and organizing the volunteers for the week. My greatest kudos go the the RIT Formula Team! I have worked in education for 25 years and during that time have had the opportunity to have many volunteers in my classroom. The ladies and gentlemen from the RIT Formula Team were amazing! They were prompt, properly dressed, eager to work with students and actively took part in the investigations. They engaged the students by assisting as needed, asking and answering questions to stimulate learning and helped in set up and clean up each day. They proudly represented RIT and the SAE Formula community.
In addition to all of that, 23 Second Graders had the opportunity to take part in rigorous and relevant hands on learning. The students were able to document this learning with pictures, videos, and learning journals. Thank you again for making last week a memorable week of learning for all!Mar 10, 2017
One of her dearest friends from undergrad got into a dirt-bike accident. Sam and Taylor Hattori had been close since freshman year when they met in the Machine Shop at RIT, a kind of on-campus mecca of drills, saws, and other heavy-duty equipment. It was for the kids, Sam says, who were “more comfortable with machines than with other people.”
Taylor’s accident left him paralyzed from the chest down. They had become the type of friends who could show up on each other’s doorsteps in the middle of the night and expect a place to crash indefinitely, no questions asked. And this was going to be no different. With the conviction to help her friend walk again, Sam quit her high-flying job at Tesla and turned her mechanical mind toward fixing a much more personal problem. Sam couldn’t build Taylor a spine, so she decided to build him the next best thing: a robotic suit.
