Meet student roboticist Cynthia Erenas in this video profile from NOVA’s “The Secret Life of Scientists & Engineers.” Cynthia is part of College Track, a college success program founded by musician will.i.am from the Black Eyed Peas. When will.i.am brought the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Robotics Competition to her school district, Cynthia fell in love with robotics and helped start 10 robotic teams in her neighborhood. Since then, Cynthia has become an accomplished roboticist and received a Dean’s List Award from FIRST founder Dean Kamen. She hopes to pursue a career in aerospace or mechanical engineering.
