|(Carlma takes a look at her robotic hardware control project ahead of a competition )|
She aspires to become an engineer in the future. This far her baby steps have been "impressive" to go by the words of some of her teachers.
For over three years now our daughter Carlma has been building robots . This has enabled her to participate in many local and world -wide robotic and STEM (Science Technology and Math ) competitions. Such has also earned her local and international recognition, awards, certificates and several medals ranging from Gold to Silver and Bronze.

Conceiving technology -related projects and building robots and bringing them to light has become her daily reality . Carlma does this on her own , sometimes with her team mates and at other times under the supervision of her teachers with much support from her family .
As we watch her grow ,we are amazed beyond measure. We are humbled!
As parents we strive to provide the much needed support and guidance as well as the necessary resources to enable her pursue her dream.

Memories of the successes recorded while in Romania, Kenya, Uganda and at the other robotics events remain dear to our hearts!
Moving forward, she recently traveled to Barcelona with the International School of Dakar-Senegal Robotics team for yet another robotic competition and we are proud to note that the team won during that competition.
Good luck to my star!Our Robotic Gem !
