When more than 10,000 students gathered in Atlanta’s Georgia Dome in April to compete in a robotics championship, the stands were filled with cheering teachers, parents, coaches and mentors — many of whom are IEEE members.

“This competition provides a tremendous opportunity for encouraging kids to study science and engineering,” said IEEE senior member Leandro Giovanni Barajas, a staff researcher at General Motors and mentor for Team 201. “Making the robot is a lot of fun, but I’ve also learned a lot and grown as a person from this mentoring experience.”
