Dereck Sanchez, a rising junior in high school, has been working with his team, R4 Robotics, for all of seven years now; but the most impressive part is that he’s only seventeen years old. His team joins many BEST Robotics competitions every year, which last approximately six weeks long each. At the age of eleven, he started learning SOLIDWORKS so his team could brainstorm what they wanted the robot to look like before they would actually start creating it.

“I love to be able to take a person’s dream and write it down in pictures for them to see. With SOLIDWORKS they can see all aspects of their design and have a video to show how to use it. I have learned so much about the versatility and the expansive ability in creating all sorts of models in SOLIDWORKS. It truly is an amazing program.
