Meet the Team
Hi my name is Kaylee Stern I am in 7th grade and this is my first year being in FTC. I joined FTC because my dad and sister are in it so I thought that I might like it. I was in robotics and I liked it a lot so I thought FTC would be fun. The part I liked the most was making the solutions for our problems and helping out with building I also helped a little bit with programming. My hobbies are playing with animals playing with legos and doing art. When I grow up I would like to be a artist/art teacher or a doctor.
Hi my name is Emily Stern. I am in 10th grade and am a sophomore at East Troy High School. I have been in FTC for two years and I joined because I wanted to learn more about how a robot worked, like moving an arm or wheel. Before FTC, I have only had the experience in robotics of 6th, 7th, and 8th grade robotics classes. My main job on the team is mechanical and I am a coach for the drive team. My hobbies include playing tennis and reading books. When I grow up, I would like to be a doctor or an engineer.
My name is Gio Eldred I am in 8th grade. This is my first year in FTC. I wanted to join because I thought it would be fun to make a robot. I have taken robotics in school for 6th, 7th, and 8th grade. I am a mechanical person on the team. I like playing with legos, magic cards, going outside, watching anime and playing video games. I am not really sure what I want to be when I grow up
