Hi My name is Allie Smith and I am in the eighth grade. This is my first year doing robotics and I decided to join the team because I wanted to deepen my knowledge in STEM and further my presentation and marketing skills. I also wanted to expose myself to many different aspects and experiences FIRST provides, because it offers useful skills that are applicable in the real world. Outside of robotics, I enjoy playing volleyball, hanging out with friends, and writing. This year I will be focusing on the marketing and engineering notebook projects.
