BP Engineering Day was held on February 11, 2010.Â This is an annual event where BP America hosts high school students from Houston ISD to encourage them to consider a career in engineering.Â Â This year the HISD e-STEM high school was selected and 125 students attended.Â Â Â Â The BP-sponsored Cinco Ranch High School CRyptonite Robotics Team 624 was invited to participate. CRyptonite Robotics competes in the FIRST Robotics Competition. The CRHS students demonstrated a hands-on pneumatics and electronics training board, explained basic concepts of robotics, and encouraged the students to test drive a robot.Â Â Also exhibiting was another of the Teamâ€™s major sponsors, Oceaneering. The participants worked with a hands-on simulator of an underwater robot used in the offshore oil industry. Â One team member, Grace Herrmann commented thatÂ Â â€œit was fun to see there are other kids who enjoy and appreciate engineering as much as we do.â€Â Â The CRHS team provided encouragement and advice to the e-STEM students as they prepare for their Rookie season in FIRST Robotics.
