The two join an elite group of 2,500 young women from all over the U.S. honored at the regional Affiliate level. “This recognition means a lot to me, and I feel extremely fortunate to receive it with Maddie,” said junior Chelsea Smith. Mr. Jeff Martin, robotics team coach and chair of Innovation, Engineering, and Entrepreneurship at Northwood, was very pleased to have two of his students receive the award. “This is the second year running we have had Northwood students receive this award,” said Martin. I am very proud, and it’s great that we have a program that supports young women studying engineering and robotics,” he said.
