Thursday, October 19, 2017, Anne Campbell, a 2002 Penn High School graduate came to visit the robotics lab. She talked about her FIRST experience during her senior year and her successes after high school. The love of problem solving and robotics have influenced her to proceed her career in engineering. She attended Purdue University and graduated with a bachelor degree in engineering. Anne then went to University of Michigan for her doctorate degree in nuclear engineering. Now, she works at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. She is studying and researching radioactive materials for her company. She has traveled all around the world such as, China, Japan, Korea, Germany, Spain, Italy, United Kingdom, and all round the United States.

In 2002, Anne Campbell was the only female student on Team 135 and part of the hardware team. Anne was very impressed how much Penn Robotics and the FIRST program has changed. From 2002 to 2017, the female growth has increased dramatically and the females have advanced in leadership roles on Team 135. Anne is very proud of Team 135’s coach, Jim Langfeldt, and the team for creating an amazing and thriving program. Team 135’s culture has become a FIRST family experience.
