David Kelly – 2011
David Kelly has been making High school students excited about science for over 30 years. Several years ago when robotics competitions began to be popular he started researching less expensive ways to participate in such activities. He discovered the VEX robotics systems which are smaller and more portable as well as being fairly inexpensive and started promoting competitions. His sabbatical year was spent expanding the number of schools using VEX robotics as well as hosting more competitions. His website is http://simplerobotics.org.
-More info about the Sabbatical can be found at www.nhcf.org.
-Helped start 42 new teams in NH, created 7 new competition sites, helped with creating an international scholarship program, and held 50 on-site informational and training sessions.
