While drafting our Student Spotlights, we decided that our teachers deserve a moment in the spotlight, as well.  So, without further ado, I’d like to introduce Sam Tran, our first instructor in the Staff Spotlight!

Thinnox: Let’s start with the basics.  How old are you and where are you from?

Sam: I’m 24 and from Toronto, but my background is Chinese.

Thinnox: What do you do at Thinnox?

Sam: I’m the Robotics Engineering instructor.

Thinnox: What’s your educational background?

Sam: I have a degree in Engineering Physics.

Thinnox: Wow.  That’s pretty impressive.  Why choose that degree?

Sam: It seemed interesting.

Thinnox: Do you have any advice, or words of wisdom for your students?

Sam: Do more Lego!

Thinnox: What’s your favourite thing about Thinnox?

Sam: The students.  They’re very bright.

Thinnox: One last question: what’s a random fact about yourself?

Sam: Hmmm…When I was in the 6th grade, I won a foosball tournament.

*As a side note, Sam is still a foosball champ today.  Last camp session, his LEGO students had an absolutely epic foosball tournament during their lunchtime.  The tournament spanned a 3-day stretch, and was no doubt inspired by their instructor.
