As a small institution established since 2005, SR's first 12th grade student graduated to college in 2009. Since then, the number of graduates have been steadily increasing. The list above reflects those who have attended SR for 3+ years, especially in high school years. Many of them have attended Storming Robots since elementary school.

Besides being Roboclub members, some of them were given the opportunity to build their leadership skills through competition team mentorship.  Many have worked at Storming Robots as technical instructors or assistants to further exercise bilateral thinking. 

Our Alumni Gain Competitive Edge in College!

Salil Pathare - 2016: Got Internship from Cisco/Core Development Group at Freshman year.
Just 2 months after entering his Freshman year at UT Austin, Salili received a summer internship offer from Cisco to join its Core Software Group. Salil attended Storming Robots from his 3rd to 12th grade. He also held instructor position at SR during his high school years.
Nikhil Shah - 2015: Accepted in school engineering team at 1st term of Freshman year.
That opportunity is very competitive, and acceptance of freshman is not common. Nikhil reported to us that interviewer primarily were interested in his projects experiences at SR; but nothing about his academic grades. He attended Storming Robots from his 5th to 12th grade. He also held instructor position at SR during his high school years.
John Van Blarcum - 2015: Received additional scholarship.
Many students at SR know him by the nickname Morgan. Morgan began attending WPI in 2014, was awarded a $15,000 scholarship during his Sophomore year. That is an annual Grant typically awarded to mechanical engineering Junior or Senior students only. We received a warm note from him and his parent. Morgan attended SR starting from his 5th grade, and held instructor positions at SR during his high school year.

Feedback From Parents

  ...you can be justifiably proud of all your students as they have gone through your classes and then graduated to good schools and careers. Through you, they not only get excited about engineering/CS/programming, but they also gain a solid foundation for their futures.   -- 2017 | Sharon Lee, Steven's mother. Steven has been accepted into top universities, with some offering handsome scholarship as well.

  We cannot thank you enough for providing a fun and challenging environment for Brady to grow his confidence and his intellect for all these years.

I can honestly say that SR and the opportunities provided helped to shape the young man that he is today. We are thrilled to see him build on that strong foundation as he pursues the next chapter of his education. Brady benefited greatly from his time at SR. The extra curricular opportunity provided challenges he would not have received otherwise.

As he heads off to college, he is well prepared for college level course work and fortunate to be in a position to have a choice between many great schools offering a total of $196,000+ of combined merit aid. A very exciting time for him.   -- 2016 | Chris Bean, Brady's father.

  It is you and your school inspiring Luke's interest into Engineering starting at his 4th grade and deepened his passion into AI. SR is his second home. He got accepted in NJ governor school. It is not only his personal success, but also Storming Robots'.   -- 2016 | Christine Jin, Luke's mother.
  Sid will attend CalTech in the coming Fall. Sid progressed so much and we can't thank you enough for your guidance and the way you taught him perseverance and led path for life skills.   -- 2016 |  Laskhma Kurella, Sid's mother.
  A shout out to your Storming Robots community as a measure of the success of Storming Robots and the invaluable impact it has on the lives of your students.     -- 2015 | Karen VanBlarcum.
  Daniel received a paid summer internship to work for NASA on the Asteroid 2020 mission. Thank you so much for all you have been teaching him! I'm sure you are an integral part of his success!     -- 2015  |  Laura Kolano, Daniel's mother.
  Brady has earned a composite score of 36 in ACT.  All of the years he has spent at Storming Robots has certainly had a hand in his high test scores and it has been the one place he has been  continually challenged  and stretched academically"     -- 2015 |  Beth Beans, Brady's mother.

  I can't rave enough about Storming Robots. My son has been going there for the past 6 years. Elizabeth motivates her students at a high level - take responsibility for their own learning, problem-solving and become THINKERS. In my opinion, they are the ethical standards she upholds.    -- 2012 |  Kristen Katko.
  Your program has been an integral piece of Morgan's education since 4th grade! He learned so much thru practical applications. It helped him stand out in college applications, and earned him great scholarships.    -- 2013 |  Karen Van Blarcum.
  My two children really enjoy Algorithmic in C class. I am so happy to see them discussing their homework and come up with various algorithms in order to resolve the problems. Truly see them developing their computational thinking skill, not just programming.      -- 2013 | Lada Lobas.
  Kevin now is doing a math internship at NJIT using the programming skills he learned from you. The professor complimented Kevin that he possesses programming skills superior to his other college interns…”     -- 2011 | Patricia Fritz, Kevin's mother.
Letter from the Shore Consortium Gifted and Talented Program organizer, Linda Krebs. Linda has organized annual school trips for G&T students from multiple schools districts to Storming Robots since 2010 for exploratory workshop.

  Want to let you know how impressed I was with our teams' robots compared to the others'. The intensity of your program was directly reflected in the complexity of our robots. You should feel very proud with your clubs' accomplishments. Your robots rocked!"    -- 2009 |  K. Van Blarcum.
  My son was so excited and kept talking about the workshop on the way home.  My daughter and her friend were completely comfortable. The big kids enjoyed their robot adventure.  We were so pleased with the day and plan to highly recommend it to our friends.      -- 2006| K. Moore.
  I really did not know just how much he would learn. It is such a great way for kids to learn so many  subjects, from physics to computer science, even writing. I was so pleasantly surprised with the quality of the curriculum you designed…”      -- 2006 | K. Katko.
  Theo really liked the robocamp.  The instructor was great, and the non robotic lessons in physics, engineering were really   fantastic. Theo worked his brain.    -- 2005 | Lisa Rabka.
  I thought it was just programming, but I see all the math work involved, and even on his organization skill. My son learned things that not normally seen in grade school level. This is more than I have expected.    ---- 2005 | Homeschool parent.
