I am the Engineering Director for our team (I am in charge of the Engineering and the Controls departments.). I have been in robotics for 6 years coming up on 7. 3 of which were Lego robotics of those 3, two were FLL, and the other was sumo-bots. I am a Junior in school, and plan on majoring in Robotic engineering at MIT. I would like to minor in Aerospace engineering.
