What is the true spirit of being a Game Changer? Whatever it is, Delaney Foster embodies it. At just 21 years she has been selected as this week’s nominee for the 2018 Special Olympics USA Games #ImAGameChanger campaign.
Delaney was on the robotics team at King's High School in Seattle, WA when she recognized her sister, Kendall, who was diagnosed with Autism at a young age couldn't be involved. After pitching the idea to her coach and teammates, she decided to start the Unified Robotics program.
Unified Robotics clubs provide ways for students to interact and feel included, while introducing a STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) environment. This program can now be used to start clubs at schools around the country.
Now that Delaney is off at college, Unified Robotics is run by the girls’ mother, Noelle Foster, and has expanded to over 50 high schools in five different states. This opportunity will continue to change the game for students seeking STEM education, inherently promoting inclusion and teamwork, like all Special Olympics activities.
