Sidney Taylor (2016 - present)
Hello! My name is Sidney Taylor and I am currently a high school junior at the Davidson Academy of Nevada. Through STEMBOPS, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work on three distinct projects, each of which has given me a look into different aspects of the CS field. During my first project, I worked in the University's robotics lab with the PR2 and Baxter robots and I learned how to code using C++. During my second project, I learned about a type of reinforcement learning called Q-learning and I developed a video to teach others about it. My most recent project, with the Autonomous Robots Lab (ARL), has been working on developing a robot-blimp for indoor applications. My experience as part of the STEMBOPS team has inspired me to keep pursuing my interests in robotics.
