UPCOMING FRESHMAN ATTENDS TECHNOLOGY SUMMIT IN CA

Upcoming freshman, Trey McGinnis (EE’16), recently returned from Stanford University, where he attended a People to People Leadership Summit on Technology. McGinnis, along with fellow delegates from around the world, participated in hands-on activities such as building a robot, workshops,  professional speakers, and visits to famous technology companies. The program gave participants an insider’s look at the world of technology. Some of the notable speakers at the Summit were John Calhoun (Producer of the Dead Space games), Mark Randall (Chief Strategist at Adobe), and Eric Ly (Co-founder of LinkedIn). They visited companies such as Adobe, Zynga, and the Sprint Collaboration Center. They were given a robotics project that challenged them to build a prototype of a robot with two Lego Mindstorm NXTg kits that would help to solve a world problem. McGinnis’s team came up with an idea to build a robot that would plant trees and other plants.

Trey McGinnis (pictured above) said “Overall it was a lot of fun, and it was an awesome experience to hear from people from big companies like Adobe and EA.”
