Craig Martinson shared with us these great comments about his daughter’s experience with her GEMMA Hoop Earrings at a few FIRST Robotics events the two of them were attending together:

Last Saturday my daughter wore a pair of your GEMMA Hoop earrings to a FIRST FTC Robotics competition in Winthrop Iowa.

I had made these for her to wear so she would get noticed. Boy did it work, my friend that was the judge adviser came up to me and said how great he thought they were. The next day I took one of them and wore as a pendant to a FIRST FLL tournament in Davenport, Iowa. One of my robot design judges asked me about them, he is part of a maker community in the Davenport area, that got us started how we can get kids interested in computer coding, WOW!

I am on a regional STEM Board in Iowa and I have been showing students, teachers, legislators and industry STEM supporters how with something catchy like the GEMMA platform we can get engagement with students.
