I was reading about some people working on robots at NASA last night. While reading their accomplishments, I realized there is so much I have to learn and do. Not only did they inspire me, they had some valuable suggestions to give.
Each person had different suggestions but one suggestion which all of them gave was to get involved. All of them agreed at the point that experience is the key. They emphasized on getting hands-on experience on building robots, no matter how small.
I realized how useful knowledge it was! A brilliant CGPA is surely appealing, but a person who builds circuits in her free time and has knowledge on making machines work with lower grades is better.
