Quote from teacher: "Robert combines those incredible qualities of great intelligence, great intuition, and great self-assurance, all wrapped up in a brain that seems to have limitless curiosity," said Ben Pfeiffer, Science teacher. "He will become a great success because he genuinely enjoys life and what he's doing with it. We should all follow Robert's lead and stop to wonder at what's going on in the world while at the same time, trying to unravel the mysteries it contains!"
