DARRYL NEWHOUSE: I'D LIKE TO THANK MR. RIDLEY-THOMAS FOR HAVING US HERE AND THE HONORABLE GLORIA MOLINA. WE'RE VERY HONORED TO BE HERE. JUST REAL QUICK, GUYS, WE HAVE A CRISIS IN THIS COUNTRY. YOUNG PEOPLE ARE NOT ENTERING THE SCIENCE, TECHNOLOGY AND MATHEMATICS FIELD. WE'RE OUTSOURCING ALL OF OUR ENGINEERS FROM INDIA, CHINA AND RUSSIA, AND WE'VE GOT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. ROBOTICS HAS ENABLED US TO MAKE THE CONNECTION BETWEEN WHAT'S TAUGHT IN THE CLASSROOM TO WHAT'S TAUGHT OUTSIDE AND KIDS MAKE REAL LIFE CONNECTIONS. THEY LEARN THINGS LIKE SYSTEMS ENGINEERING, THEY LEARN THE DESIGN PROCESS, THEY LEARN HOW TO WORK IN TEAMS, THEY LEARN RESPONSIBILITY, THEY LEARN PROFESSIONALISM, THEY LEARN ALL THE THINGS AT THIS AGE IN HIGH SCHOOL THAT THE BIG BUSINESSES ARE LOOKING FOR, PEOPLE THAT THEY CAN HIRE THAT ARE COMPETENT AND INTELLIGENT THAT CAN DO TECHNOLOGY. SO THAT'S WHY WE DO THIS, AND IT'S A GREAT HONOR TO BE HERE AND I THANK THE STUDENTS AND MY MENTORS. [APPLAUSE.]

SUP. RIDLEY-THOMAS: WITH THAT KIND OF ENTHUSIASM, WE KNOW WHY THESE YOUNGSTERS HAVE DONE AS WELL AS THEY HAVE. WE THANK YOU, MR. NEWHOUSE. LET'S GIVE A BIG ROUND OF APPLAUSE TO
