About Our Director

Emma Tami

My name is Emma Tami and I am thrilled to be running the TEKI camp at JCC MetroWest.  With over a decade of experience in the classroom, including summer camps and after-school enrichments, I’m prepared with a variety of engineering challenges for the campers this summer.  My goal for this camp is to create a safe and inclusive environment where campers can experience robotics while learning critical engineering and programming skills.

During the school year, I teach STEAM electives to middle school students, and also run the school’s robotics program. All of my classes focus on engineering and using different tools and materials in a project based format. 

Outside of the classroom, I coach teams that participate in First Lego League at the Challenge and Explore levels.  This competitive robotics program focuses on teamwork and uses Lego Spike robots to achieve thematic objectives.  Coaching in this league has shown me the opportunities that robotics can offer to students and the true enjoyment that students feel when they see their ideas become reality.
