Paree became connected to STEM four years ago with a desire to mentor robotics teams in the area. Since that time, she has led robotics camps each summer, taught a Lego Robotics course at the School, and mentored our FLL and FTC teams. "I became involved with teaching summer camps at STEM because of the enthusiasm that I see in kids when they are exposed to robots. It is very rewarding for me to watch them learn and grow intellectually by being innovative with their robot designs," she says.
"My favorite part of being a mentor is observing the joy and excitement in the students when they have built a robot and programmed it. Watching the robot move for the first time thrills and stimulates them to learn more."
In addition to helping out at STEM, Paree enjoys camping and skiing with her husband and two sons, reading a good book, and learning more about robotics. She has enjoyed coaching FIRST teams for several years.
"STEM kids all seem to have a thirst for learning and want to expand their knowledge in math and science. This makes teaching at STEM a challenging and rewarding experience" says Paree.
