TOPIC 2 An experience or achievement that has had significant meaning in your life You may discuss an obstacle that you have overcome The intellectual achievement that I feel is my most prominent academic experience is participating for the second consecutive year in the Prince of Wales Robotics Team This was an opportunity to gain valuble insights into designing and manufacturing electrical robots with fellow teammates and professional engineers Firstly in connection with my involvement in the Robotics Team I was able to learn the systematic ways of applying textbook material to realistic problem solving This was my greatest challenge As a member of a core group we were able to devise a functional remote-controlled robot designed to achieve a specific task under the constraints of time As a consequence of team effort and ingenuity we ranked first in our province of British Columbia at the 1996 National Championships Another aspect of my participation with this high school club in problem solving was to acquire the neccessary funds in the construction materials competition fees as well as for personal expenses required for traveling outside the province for competitions Fund-raising was both stressful and difficult due to the fact that corporate sponsors had limited resources and could not finance to the extent that had been previously predicted As time progressed the situation worsened simply because the district school board received financial cuts due to the reduced provincial budget The problem of convincing sponsors outside of the norm became a task in itself With this type of experience I am sure that I can organize a better fund-raising scheme as an active member in future groupsHowever without any doubt to have a successful fund-raising campaign promotion is definitely necessary The main reason for this is that if the knowledge of about the team was other than we need financial sponsors then they could have been more comfortable and probably even willingful to donate larger sums
