“The same aspects I love most about robotics – innovation, creativity, & teamwork to name a few – are the qualities that best define my SHAD experience. In addition to the incredibly strong sense of community, I will never forget the important tools SHAD gave me, as I continue to apply them in my current and future pursuits.”

– Catherine, SHAD’16


“SHAD allowed me to get hands on with robotics and learn even more than I could have imagined.”
