APEX, N.C. – Fuentek, LLC has announced that Danielle McCulloch, technology transfer consultant for the company, has been selected to serve as a robot inspector for the NCFIRST Robotics Competition Regional Tournament. The event, which will be held at Dorton Arena in Raleigh April 1-3, will showcase the work of teams of high school students, who have six weeks to design and build a robot from a “kit of parts” provided by the competition. Each team is paired with professional mentors to guide them through the process. Teams must follow a set of rules when constructing their robot, and then submit it to the competition where they will be judged on design, team spirit, professionalism and maturity, and their problem-solving abilities.

“We are excited that Danielle is going to be a robot inspector for the NCFIRST Robotics Competition,” said Laura A. Schoppe, president of Fuentek, LLC. “It is important to get students excited about science, engineering and research at a young age, and I am confident that Danielle will be a positive role model and encourage the students during the competition.”
