[ Music ]>>My name is John, and I’m on the navy team,
and we’re gonna win because we designed a rover that is rugged, reliable, and easy to
use.>>Hi my name is Amanda, I’m part of Team Gold, and our team is gonna win because we
have some cool programs and a sustainable structure that can handle a wide range of
rugged terrain. [ Electric rover motor ]>>My name is Chris, I’m on the green team, and we’re gonna win because we
built an amazing rover, it’s a simple design, it can handle terrain, and it can accomplish
the mission that it set out to do.>>My name is Julianna, I’m a member of the red team,
and I believe our rover is gonna win because of its minimalistic design and overall effectiveness.
We included fewer parts, so there’s less chance for things to go wrong with our rover. [ Electric rover motor ]>>I think
this experience is a great opportunity because it’s given me some insight on what actually
engineering is all about, and how to work on a team together in an engineering firm.>>By talking to actual engineers, about actual scientists, and seeing the work that they
do, I’m able to integrate that into my own academic work, and reflect on that in my life,
and use that to become a better person, and a more competitive candidate, and someone
that can someday contribute more to a team.>>Being a female in the engineering field, a
lot of the time, I’m not looked down upon, but people maybe even expect less, but coming
here and seeing all the female engineers and people at NASA, and even people telling me
how great I can be here, I think that was my favorite part.>>Being given the opportunity
to lead was something I never expected, because I always thought I would be a follower, I
never expected to lead. [ Electric rover motor ]>>Yeah!!>>Come on! Come on!>>Whoo!! [ Music ] [ Clapping/Cheering ] [ Electric rover motor ] [ Music ]>>Awwww!! [ Electric rover motor ] [ Music ] [ Clapping/Cheering ]>>Yes!>>Whoo! [ Electric rover motor ] [ Clapping/Cheering ]
