Beyond technical mastery, GRC unveiled the human spirit of robotics. Shared journeys, struggles, and triumphs wove a community stronger than the contest itself. These robots were not merely circuits, 3D printed parts and code; they were ingenuity personified. Witnessing their dedication to tackling real-world problems was both humbling and electrifying. I am counting down every second until GRC 2024 kicks off!

Tech Era

I had the incredible opportunity to serve as a volunteer instructor for FireflyIO during their maiden Ghana robotics competition. Coaching students from Mfantsiman Girls SHS, St. Louis Senior High School, Aggrey Memorial AME Zion Senior High School, and Opoku Ware School was a remarkable experience. FireflyIO's dedication to robotics education and competition organization is truly commendable. Witnessing the enthusiasm and innovation of Ghanaian students fueled my belief in the potential of technology in Ghana and across Africa. FireflyIO is shaping the future of robotics education on the continent, and I'm proud to be part of their impactful journey.
