Kevin Ross, a 1988 UW CSE alum, accepted the UW College of Engineering Diamond Award for Public Service at last night’s annual awards banquet. Kevin, a former Microsoft design engineer, founded Washington FIRST Robotics in 2002. WFR today works with over 7,500 students and 2000 volunteers in Washington State and matches student groups with mentors to provide high quality experiences. Their goal is to have a FIRST robotics team available for every student in the state. Kevin and WFR are changing lives across our state — inspiring the engineers of the future.
