Team Members

William

William

I never wrote a bio, but my teammates do know that I am 17 and that it is my 5th year on the team. I fly RC planes, and my teammates aren’t exactly sure, but I fly real planes too.

Anaum

I am 15 years old and a sophomore at Richard Montgomery High School. This is my third year competing in FTC and fifth year competing in FIRST robotics. I am apart of the hardware team and this year, I hope to get more involved with the software team by fulfilling my goal of learning java. Aside from robotics, I enjoy taking up different building projects and participating in school clubs like Mock Trial and SGA. I hope to pursue a career in engineering and I am excited to see what the season has in store!

I am 13 years old and I am home-schooled‒I would be in 8th grade in public school. This is my second year on the team. I love working with machine tools like the lathe and mill in our miniature machine shop. I am in Boy Scouts, and I do some photography and remote control as a hobby.

Divya

I am 15 years old and a sophomore at Richard Montgomery High School. This is my third year on team 7393 but I have been doing FIRST competitions since I was in fourth grade. I am the lead for the software team this year. My favorite accomplishment is making an augmented reality game with Unity. I enjoy reading books and watching Netflix.

Coaches

Tom

I have been a mentor and coach for FTC team 7393 since its inception. I love sharing my experience in robotics design and metalworking with students of all ages. I am an electrical engineer at NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland where I work on mechatronics in cutting-edge scientific satellites. I drive an all-electric Nissan Leaf Chevrolet Bolt and regularly promote electric vehicles at local events.

Jon

Jon

This is my ninth year to coach robotics, and I'm still having a blast. In my day job, I develop scientific software at the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Lab, working on various space missions for NASA and others. The best thing about FTC is giving kids the chance to learn real engineering skills in a real team environment.
