Philip Liu is a senior at Westlake High School heavily involved in STEM programs. With the opportunities provided to him, he has worked hard to become a respected leader with a unique impact. His experiences have led to the development of both technical and management skills including leadership, communication, and perseverance. In Chap Research, Philip documents the CMP, leads CROMA, and works on the senior staff.
Outside of Chap Research, Philip is the President of SACOT: the STEM Advocacy Conference of Texas (www.sacot.org). SACOT is an organization created to help spread STEM through advocacy in local and state governments. He is a member of FRC 2468 Team Appreciate and serves as a lifelong learner, teammate, and mentor. On 2468, Philip is a member of the outreach sub-team and co-leads the fundraising sub-team. He uses his knowledge of machinery to assist in robot manufacturing and teach less-experienced robotics students.
One of his goals is to maintain a sustainable STEM pipeline in the local community. Without the help of older students and mentors, Philip wouldn’t be the person he is today. To him, that’s why it’s one of his responsibilities as an individual to give back and help others reach their maximum potential. With his spare time, Philip volunteers as a TaeKwonDo instructor and plays football/basketball with his friends. He has a passion for everything he does and loves to do it all with a smile. 🙂
