Aaron Burgin | February 25, 2016

For as long as Nikki Arm can remember, science has been her passion. So when it came time for the longtime Girl Scout to select her Gold Award project, it was no surprise that it would focus on her love for science — especially robotics.Nikki, a 17-year-old junior at San Dieguito Academy, combined that love for science and robotics and her other love — creative writing — in a series of books aimed at promoting science, technology, engineering, arts and math, or STEAM, to young girls. She has the published the first book of the series, “Riley Loves Robotics,” a 32-page story done in Seuss-like prose about a little girl who turns to robotics to make 100 posters for the fictitious “Ocean Conservancy Day.”
