Humans of Northwood: Noah Pittman ’21

My name is Noah Pittman. I have a cat and some fish. I used to go to a school in Saranac Lake before Northwood, but I never really fit in. Northwood gave me a second chance. Sometimes it’s hard not being a hockey player or a soccer player here because you see everyone else succeed athletically all the time, but I try to stick to what I can do and what makes me feel good. I came here mainly for robotics. Mr. Martin is a great robotics teacher. The vex and advanced programs he has are great. This year I’m only in the vex program because I doubled up on math, which is another thing I could have never done at my old school. I went to the first robotics competitions at Northwood thinking that I had a good robot and I’d get first place, but I got 10th. I was happy to make it to states, but I never really won, which was sort of a disappointment to me. But it gave me time to think and learn about teamwork.
