In addition to our
acknowledged on these pages,
FIRST extends its sincere appreciation to the
tens of thousands of Volunteers who generously
devote their time and expertise to FIRST Robotics
Dr. Earl Scime
Physics Department,
West Virginia University;
FRC Team 2614 Mentor
2012Woodie FlowersAwardWinner
So say the members of
FIRST
Robotics
Competition (FRC) Team 2614, “MARS”,
from Morgantown, West Virginia. They are
referring to their Mentor, Dr. Earl Scime, aka
the “MARS Rock.” They describe a man with
unending encouragement, a focus on high
quality programs, and a concentrated effort
to firmly and thoroughly guide students along
scientific and technical paths. Dr. Scime helps
students realize that difficult problems can
be solved with effort and organization. His
team has applied this thinking not only to their
robots, but also to their successful
non-robotic endeavors.
While developing new and strong FRC
teams, and many new
FIRST
LEGO League
teams, Dr. Scime has succeeded in the major
goal of
FIRST
— the “big I,” inspiration.
As a team leader, he has inspired students
throughout West Virginia. The foundation
that has been built with his guidance will
undoubtedly result in great things for
years to come.
