BadgerBOTS Blog

Welcome to our newest web feature. There’s so much passion among our families and staff for everything STEM, we thought it would be fun to create a space for enthusiastic builders and coders to share what they know with you. Our board chair, Rory Foster, both an engineer and patent lawyer, volunteered to write the first series of posts. Read on to learn about inventors past and present and explore the innovations they brought to industry.

This week we have another contributor. Joel Cryer was a BadgerBOTS student who went on to attend UW-Madison, graduating with a bachelor’s in biological systems engineering in May 2018. His blog encourages us to volunteer as citizen scientists. It can be as easy as donating computing power to scientists through a crowdsourced program called BOINC, which uses excess processor power to run scientific simulations.
