Product Description

* A powerful story of dreams coming true! When Williams was growing up in a Kansas ghetto, he never thought he would earn his doctorate in engineering---much less lead the first female African American team to compete in Japan's RoboCup tournament. His amazing story will inspire you to follow your own God-given aspirations! 200 pages, softcover from Lift Every Voice.

Publisher's Description

In Out of the Box: Building Robots, Transforming Lives, Andrew Williams tells his story of overcoming life's odds to build robots and impact the lives of six bright and adventurous African American females. Tracing the steps of his journey, Williams takes us from the Kansas ghetto of his childhood to Osaka, Japan, where he led the first all-female team from Spelman College, the Spelbots, to the stage of the RoboCup Tournament. Driven by his belief that God called him to uplift and encourage African American youth, Dr. Andrew Williams proves that seemingly impossible dreams become possible with God. In this book, he challenges the reader through his own faith story to find and pursue their unique calling, even when it does not seem to make sense.
