Hi, I’m Thomas; nice to meet you! I did Lego League in elementary school, so when I heard about robotics (FTC), I was extremely interested. I’m a huge gamer, so in turn, I’m extremely competitive. I’m a junior at Kennedy this year and I’m excited for this season.
This is my second year in FTC robotics. I generally work with marketing and have driven a little.
I am eighteen and a senior in high school. This is my second year in robotics as a programmer on the team. Outside of robotics, I’m interested in chess, math, science, and video games. I also play the tuba in band. My favorite color is orange, my favorite day of the week is Friday, and my favorite food is pizza.
Hi, my name’s Emily Cooper and I’m a sophomore at Kennedy High School. I like fishing, hunting, swimming, reading, messing with people, making up words that sound real, and doing any kind of puzzle or mind game. I also like animals and currently have three dogs and two cats. My favorite color is red and my favorite subject is math. A few things I don’t like are…Well there aren’t too many things I don’t like, and at the moment, the only thing that I can’t stand are people that act stupid when they really aren’t.
I first became interested in robotics in fourth grade when I applied for the Lego League team at my elementary school. In the summer of 2013, I took a computer engineering class at Iowa State University. I’m also interested in mechanical engineering, but I haven’t taken any classes. In robotics, I’ve mostly been working on the mechanical side of the robot, however I also have advised on the program. One of my favorite things to do is play video games. I play Red Crucible and Ratchet and Clank online with Thomas Smeed. I also enjoy playing bari sax and flute in band. I march with flute and do concert band bari sax. I plan to go to ISU for college computer engineering. While I’m at Kennedy High School, I want to take three years of German and four years of math.
I like Particle Physics, war history, and reading. As you can see, I have a very polar personality. I hope someone is going to type this out since I have bad handwriting. If not, I’m sorry.
Now Latin: O mors numquam hostis noster! Iocum sciens meliores venit, Et maiora bella; dum quisque pugnator gloriatur supérbi. Ille bellis mori – nam vitae non homines – neque enim cessa
I like to read, listen to music, and I am in show choir. I don’t really do anything, except go to school, eat, and sleep. Otherwise, I just go sit somewhere and read or listen to music in between show choir practice and robotics club. I just sound awfully interesting, don’t I?
Bow ties are cool and do not forget it. I like Doctor Who and video games. I enjoy building robots.
“I am right nine times out of ten. But it seems to me that that one time seems to happen a lot more often than it should.” – Albert Einstein.
This is my first year in robotics. I like robots and other electronic things. I hope to learn new things and meet new people while in robotics. I also hope I will be a four year robotics team member. I’d also like to be a productive member of the team.
This is my second year in robotics. I’m junior in high school. I’ve been to three different schools since I started high school: the first was up in Minnesota, the second was down in Texas, and now I live in Iowa. When I first heard of this robotics league I wanted to join, and that was two years ago when I lived in Minnesota. I remember when I was young I always loved to build things with Legos. My cousin down in Texas got me hooked onto the British SciFi show Doctor Who. I’m also in Boy Scouts, and I’m almost a Eagle scout.
When I was young, I took apart my brother’s toy to figure out how it worked, but I couldn’t get it back together: I have a fascination with building things and taking them apart, which is why I joined in the first place. I also like puzzles and video games such as Portal. I also enjoy reading and fishing with my brother, dad, and grandpa.
I have had an interest in engineering since I was about 7. I like to help my dad fix up our cars and since almost no one else in my family knows how to fix them, we usually help. My dad works at Rockwell Collins and my mom works at Toyota Financial. I have two brothers and I am the middle child. My older brother is a junior, I am a freshmen and my younger brother is in seventh grade. I like engineering, cars, baseball (even though I don’t play it), video games, soccer and playing it (enough to go see a Liverpool game in Chicago and, yes, they were in Chicago), and making the occasional trip to Texas to see family. I have been in FLL for the past 3 years and then the opportunity for this came up and if you read what is above on the engineering thing, you know why I’m here.
