Our Team


Meet our team!

For the 2020-2021 Season, our team includes six team members: Jalynn, Joel, Nathan, Ellie, Jaxon, and David!

Jalynn

Business Sub Team: Engineering Notebook

Software Sub Team: Strategy

My name is Jalynn, and I’m a home-schooled senior. This is my third year on the team and I do the Engineering Notebook. I did FIRST Lego League in fifth grade and instantly fell in love with robotics, but scheduling problems prevented me from joining another team until learning about the Browncoats in 10th grade. I am willing to help in any area needed on the Browncoats. I’m interested in the Engineering Notebook, building, and possibly programming. During my free time I like reading, writing, listening to music, and talking (or hanging out) with my friends.

Joel 

Software Sub Team: Programming

Mechanical Sub Team: Builder, CAD

My name is Joel, and I am 13 years old. This is my second year on the team and with FIRST. My roles on the team have been photographer, videographer, and a builder. This season, I want to do more CAD, programming, and helping with building the robot. Some of my favorite things to do include Minecraft, photography, and soldering together helpful gadgets of my own creation.

Nathan

Mechanical Sub Team: Builder

Drive Sub Team: Human Player

My name is Nathan, and I’m 12 years old. I’m a builder and a Human Player, and this is my second year on the team. I’m also homeschooled. I’m excited to learn more and make new friends on the team.

 

Ellie

Business Sub Team: Engineering Notebook

Mechanical Sub Team: Builder

Software Sub Team: Strategy

My name is Ellie, and I am in 10th grade at Providence Classical School. This is my first year on the team. I love reading and writing, so I was excited when Jalynn invited me to the team to come work on the Engineering Notebook. This year I want to work on the Engineering Notebook, but I am also excited to learn new skills.

Jaxon

Mechanical Sub Team: Builder

Drive Sub Team: Driver

Hello, I am Jaxon Phillips, and I have only been on the team this year. I love to learn about science and history. I got interested in the team when I was at the library and saw this team demonstrating their robots. I really hope to learn the basics of building a robot, Java, and CAD. 

David

Mechanical Sub Team: Builder

Drive Sub Team: Driver

My name is David and I am a freshman at James Clemens High School. This is my first year on the team and I am a builder. I work on lots of motorized vehicles like dirt bikes and go-karts, so when a friend mentioned this team to me, I was already interested. I really hope to learn something new by the end of my time on the team.
