Brooklyn Tech Student Places Third in International Competition
Christian Garcia, a member of the Brooklyn Tech team, recently won Third Place in the Autodesk Inventor Design Competition. Christian created a rendering of a robot for the 2007 FIRST Robotics competition.
Submissions were judged on their use of Inventor capabilities, innovation, and aesthetic appeal. Students were competing for prizes from HP, AWD, and 3Dconnexion.
Christian exemplifies the best of what New York City has to offer. He chose to attend Brooklyn Tech because he wanted to take engineering classes even though it meant commuting more than an hour from his home in Washington Heights.
After a year of competing in the FIRST LEGO League, Christian dedicated himself to the FIRST Robotics Competition. Christian says, "FIRST gave me the opportunity to meet great people that helped me develop character." In addition, Christian is thankful because he got to be a leader within the team and to try new things.
This summer he is headed to the University of Central Florida where he will major in Aerospace Engineering. Congratulations Christian! We're proud of you.
