I had an incredible time speaking with the scouts about R2 during their 100th Anniversary Council Camporee. There were hundreds of scouts, so I had to do the presentation multiple times in order to accommodate the crowd, but each group of scouts was enthusiastic, polite, and willing to learn. We spoke about the design and build process, the STEM fields, and the many ways a project like R2 can expand your knowledge and imagination. We talked about the importance of teamwork, and I also suggested that they reach out to professionals for help. I encouraged them to challenge themselves to complete a project that takes months to complete and is outside their comfort zone. The lessons that can be learned with such a project go far beyond the technical skills. Soft skills like tenacity, networking, organization, and budget are also important skills that one learns when taking on a large, complex project. Any difficulties encountered during the process are certainly outweighed by the sense of accomplishment upon completion, and that feeling carries through all aspects of life. It was an honor speaking to such an impressive group of students, and I am certain that all of them will go far in life.
