Sean K

Sean K.
VP of Media & Marketing

Grade: Junior
Why I Joined: My older brother, who is now a mentor, told me that you don’t have to be part of the team to solely build a robot. He then introduced me to the VP of a Media (at the time) and he explained what his role was. I made one video of the team my eighth grade year and I was hooked.

Jamie M

Jamie M.
VP of Outreach

Grade: Senior
Why I Joined: I knew I wanted engineering to be my future career so the team fit perfectly. It helped a lot that I already had friends on the team, so I wasn’t jumping in totally blind.
My Plans for Outreach: I want us to continue to be a positive beacon in our community and to continue our STEM Outreach to younger generations.
Favorite Team Memory: Comp in Denver last year, we’d had so much trouble with the climber on Scoop that every Endgame was so stressful. It was one Endgame, I think the first where the drivers got Scoop to climb with no issues, and our team just went crazy.
