Theresa Wang

Theresa Wang

My name is Theresa Wang. I'm currently a sophomore at South River High School. I joined the South River Rambotics FRC team freshman year and I became interested in the technological field. FIRST is a great program for me to pursue my passion in technology along with endless opportunities of learning experience. I hope to soon strive for the engineering field following my high school career.

Michael Shen

Michael Shen

My name is Michael Shen, and I am currently in 8th Grade at Churchill Junior High School. This is my first year participating in a FIRST event, and I am relatively new to robotics in general. I am 13 years old, and became interested in computer programming about a year ago, particularly in C and C++, and decided to do FIRST as a result. I enjoy working taking apart and playing with electrical appliances, as well as studying code, and have had some experience with hardware. Currently on the team I am doing programming for Autonomous, as well as coaching at some of the competitions. Overall, I find technology and engineering very interesting, and hope to major in either mechanical or software engineering.

Kyle Wang

Kyle Wang

Hi my name is Kyle Wang. I am 15 years old, and I am a freshman at Churchill Junior High School in East Brunswick. This is my first year doing FTC, or any kind of robotics competition, so this is a new experience for me. In the past, I have built multiple computers, so I do have a little experience for robotics. Currently, I am the primary driver for the team, and I work mostly on the mechanical aspect of the robot. I have taken engineering courses at school, and this allows me to solve problems from different angles, and incorporate different strategies into the construction of the robot. Some of my hobbies and interests include computer sciences, engineering, physics, firearms, reading, swimming, volleyball, and playing the cello.

Leon

Leon

My name is Leon. I’m a 7th Grade student at Hammarskjold Middle School in East Brunswick. I’m 12 years old and this is the first time doing a robotics competition. I’ve built my own computer and that is all the experience I have with building in technology. I had just recently joined the team, so I am sub in for secondary driver and help out with the mechanical parts when needed. I have no experience with working with mechanical parts, so this is completely new to me. I also take interest in reading, volleyball, technology, playing the cello, and hanging out with friends.

Andrew Chen

Andrew Chen

My name is Andrew Chen. I attend Churchill Junior High School in East Brunswick as a freshman. I am 15 years old as of the 2017 school year, and FTC is my first experience in a competitive robotics program. I have extensive experience with construction toys and PC building, and limited experience with robots and raw electronics. I played a role in brainstorming and building the robot and serve as the secondary driver. My other interests include playing volleyball, skiing, learning history through traveling, playing the violin, and content creation through video editing.

Arianna Daringa

Arianna Daringa

Hi my name is Arianna Daringa. I am an 8th grader at Churchill Junior High School in East Brunswick. This is my first year doing FTC and robotics. I have experience in technology learning activities and in architectural drawings on autodesk inventor. I hope to play a role in brainstorming and building the robot. My other interests include fencing, track and field, professional photography, women rights, and learning foreign languages. In general, I find engineering very fascinating and, hope to mesh my interest in law-enforcement and engineering into one career.
