Future Plans/Career Goals: I plan to attend college and become a math teacher or a mechanical engineer.

Favorite Memory/Memories about Robotics: My favorite memory is during the 2016 FTC season with Mr. Raymond during competition. Faith and I  needed to basically get “Paperweight” workings again before our match. We did get it done.

Reason(s) for Joining the Team: I want to support the team the best I can, so we can be as successful as possible. I have lots of skill, so I wanted to be an important part. Also, I want to be involved with STEM fields in school.

Name: Sean

Years on team: 1

Sub teams: Build

Hobbies: Playing soccer, designing and building computers, and annoying Tyler

Future Plans/Career Goals: Study Nano-Tech engineering at the University of Albany.

Favorite Memory/Memories about Robotics: My favorite memory of robotics has to be from the 8th grade team with Mr. Raymond. Our very poorly put together robot Gustav, was able to get third place in battle bots against all the ridicule and damage taken from other rounds, Gustav was able to put on a great show and place top 3.

Reason(s) for Joining the Team: I joined robotics for the chance to try and work with other students in the goal of designing and building a robot for competition. Ever since I was about 3, I have always had a fascination with how things work and how technology itself was able to complete the tasks it does. Robotics to me is an insight on how everything fits together to complete these amazing tasks in the world.

Goals for this Year: My plan for this year is to help take part in the building of the robot and to hopefully have the team go to worlds.

Favorite Memory/Memories about Robotics: Last year. when I was on the Robotics Team for 8th grade at North Park, my favorite part of the year was when we went to Rochester, NY to compete against other teams in a series of different competitions like the Robot Cage Match. Mr. Raymond and Mr. Ellis formed two teams of three members each, and we each created a robot to compete in the Robot Cage Match. I was on Mr. Raymond’s Team with Jeremy and Katie, and so we created a heavy robot so we could not get flipped and we also created a trebuchet that would spin very fast to increase its effectiveness. In our first game with our robot, we broke the one inch rod that was the connected to the gears spun by motors when we hit another team’s robot severely hard, destroying their flipping mechanism, and their ability to move. To repair the hard hit, we had to screw the rod back together on the nearest gear in order to make it work properly. We managed to save the robot and destroy competing teams’s robots, but then we encountered Mr. Ellis’ team. We managed to beat them by just forcing them into a wall, making them unable to move due to the fact that our robot was heavier than theirs. In the end, we lost to a team that made their robot completely out of steel, and their weapon was made out of a lawnmower blade modified with hook like sharp blades at a 90 degree angle attached to the ends of the blades. For some reason, we forfeited because Mr. Raymond wanted to save the modules on the robot, but what I should have said is we could could juts force them into a wall, and then they could not move or deal any more damage to us.

Reason(s) for Joining the Team: The reason I wanted to join the Lockport Robotics Team, The Warlocks, is because I wanted to expand my knowledge on robotics after having fun and enjoying the program in 8th grade, which in turn set that motivation in motion for the future. Another reason I wanted to join is because I also want to possibly become an Engineer.

Goals for this Year: The reason I wanted to join The Warlocks is because I wanted to expand my knowledge on robotics after having fun and enjoying the program in 8th grade, which in turn set that motivation in motion for the future.
