Our Robotic Gem!Standing tall in a technology era!

By Mabi Azefor Fominyen

(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.

We remain very grateful to the Robotics Club of Galaxy International School in Uganda particularly Mr Mikail  Alici for believing in our daughter 's dream and recognising her potentials as well as  for providing the appropriate training, mentorship ,  a befitting environment and the context for her to kick start what hopes to be a future career .

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 !
