Hi, my name is Rebeca Vargas, and I am a sophomore at Peddie. This is my first year on the Peddie Robotics programming team. The teachers at my middle school piqued my interest in coding with short classes dedicated to learning to code in programs like Hour of Code. I first heard of FRC as an avenue to further my coding interest before I even came to Peddie. I gained more interest after taking an introductory programming class last year and took an online summer course to gain more experience.
I am very excited to join the programming team this year! Despite my recent exposure to code, I am excited to learn from my peers and more experienced team members. I am also excited to be on a team and work alongside so many different people.
Outside of FRC, I enjoy singing in our school’s chorus and acting on stage. I participated in the fall play, The Laramie Project, and plan on participating in next year’s fall play as well.
