Meet our Team
This is Luke’s second year on Team 519; however, when he lived in Florida, he was on a another FTC team. Last year, Luke was on the programming team. This year he is a key member on the programming team, and is also co-admin captain.
Gorav has been involved with robotics for five years, but this is his third year on Team 519. Last year Gorav helped out with Outreach and was head of the pit and match scouting team. This year he is co-admin with Luke. He is very excited for the opportunity to be able to lead the team with Luke’s help.
This is Peter’s third year on Team 519. He has always liked Legos, technology, and robotics. His main hobbies are 3D printing and robotics. He hopes to get a degree in mechanical engineering from Virginia Tech.
Carter first got into robotics when he was 8. This is his third year on Team 519. He spends most of his time at meetings working on hardware, or design, either with pen and paper or 3D modeling. A piece of advice he would give to future members, is to always stay focused during meetings.
This is John’s second year on the team and his second year on an FTC team. This experience has sparked an interest in Aerospace Engineering. He has learned lots of new skills in robotics, software, and engineering. He hopes he can get into the engineering program at Texas A&M.
Software Team Member
This is Michael’s first year participating in FTC and robotics in general at Herndon High School. He joined after being referred by a few people already participating, and was instantly drawn in because of his interest in programming and previous experience with it. Since joining, he has been introduced to the complete other side of engineering by the other members of the team and hopes to continue this learning for the future. Michael plans on continuing into the computer science field; this team has helped him get closer to that goal.
Build Team Member
This is Aditya’s second year on the FTC Team, and he returned to the team this year because of the amounts of fun and how much he learned last year. He plans on becoming a computer science major, and going into the field of software development.
Build Team Member
This is Brady’s first year on an FTC team. He joined after reaching out to the build captain. He instantly found himself asking questions and tries to help wherever he can. He currently hopes to achieve a better understanding for all things mechanical and to learn just what it takes to build a robot.
