​Years with FIRST: 4 years FTC, 6 years FLL

​Hello, my name is Isaac. This is my 10th year as a FIRST student, and my 4th year of FTC. My favorite part of being on an FTC team is designing and building the robot. My interests include Rocket League, Soccer, Ultimate Frisbee, and hanging out with my friends. I have three older siblings, all of which have been on a FIRST team at one time or another.  We all four have been home educated our entire lives.  Our family lives in the country with one horse, one cat, and five dogs (three of which are dachshunds). I hope to attend college to pursue an engineering degree of some sort.

Hi, I'm Ben, and have been in first for 4 years.  I did FLL for 2 years and this is my second year in FTC.  I decided to join because I wanted a new challenge and to hang out with my friends.  My favorite thing about the team is how they always make me laugh and I always have fun at the meetings.  My future career is to graduate with a bachelor's degree in computer science.  I have 2 sisters and 1 brother who are all older than me, and 1 dog, 1 turtle, and 2 fish.

​Years with FIRST: 3 years FTC

HI My name is Ana, I'm a senior, and this is my third year of FTC. My favorite part about being on this team is getting to become friends with people I wouldn’t ordinarily meet as well as getting to see the team and robot progress over the season. Besides robotics my interests include: Singing and making music, writing, photography, childcare, creating art, and being with my friends and family. After high school I'd like to become a mental health activist/clinical psychologist.
