Chairman's Countdown

BetsyS's picture

So our team has five days left to submit its Chairman's Essay, Woodie Flowers submission, and team website. It's unbelievable how quickly the build season has passed, and though I'm looking forward to leaving Stuyvesant a little earlier than 9 at night, I almost wish I had a few more days left on the team. As stressful and punishing as the robotics team is, I don't know how long it'll be until I need to push myself this hard again, and I'm kind of impressed to see how much the team can accomplish in a short six weeks.

As for the actual essay, I'm now working on the second full draft, which is about the third idea or so we've had in the past few days. It's hard to come up with a good theme for an essay that is over three pages long and spans such a diverse list of topics. Thankfully, I have a lot of teammates, alumni, and mentors who can look over our submission and make it much, much better.

Anyway, good luck to all teams during Week 6, and I'll see you at competition!
