Nikki Block
Class of 2020

Hello, my name is Nikki. I am on the build team and dreamt of joining Nemesis since first hearing about it.  I have loved building things with LEGOs and K'nex since I was little.  I first became interested in joining Nemesis after participating in the annual Robotics Discovery Day. Since then, I have learned more about the team, which made me even more excited to join.  My family is made up of engineers and other STEM careers, and I hope to join them as a mechanical engineer.  I am honored to be a part of this team because it will give me a chance to learn valuable aspects of engineering and be a part of a group that makes phenomenal robots.  I believe that on Nemesis I will learn a lot about designing and building robots as well as having fun while doing it.

Outside of robotics, I am a third degree black belt and spend a lot of my free time training and teaching at my karate school.  I also help prepare kids for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah at my Hebrew school, and am currently learning to speak Hebrew.  I love reading/watching fantasy and sci-fi stories such as Narnia and Doctor Who and am usually wearing at least one thing Harry Potter related.
