About Team 3926

We are a team that allows students to explore their interest in engineering. We allow for space to grow and nurture passions in order to create a future generation of engineers and leaders. Our goal is to foster a plethora of integral skills, ranging from public speaking to building and design in order to create the most holistic view of engineering possible. We hope to embody a spirit of innovation, problem solving, and exploration through building robots. While every skill is valued, we encourage each student to find a specific place on the team, where they can learn flourish, then lead.

Business Team

Build Team

On the Build team, the main goals are constructing a reliable drive base and designing mechanisms for the robot. Build team members use their engineering skills to create a CAD model of the robot, cut or construct the parts they need in the shop, and test and iterate on the mechanisms they've designed. Build team is currently lead by Thomas Mooney and Anthony Troullier who are both juniors

The Business team reaches out to potential sponsors to help raise funds for the team. Business team is currently lead by senior Ian Thompson. The team keeps current sponsors informed about the team’s progress through social media, newsletters and the team website.  Business team conducts outreach through phone calls, emails, presentations, and lab tours. Business members learn better communication skills and expand their writing from just essays to newsletters, emails and brochures.

Code Team

The Code team writes commands for the robot using the programming language Java.  Coders work to program different classes and methods to control different aspects of the robot's actions. Code team is lead by Xingtong (Amy) Xiang who is a senior and Ian Frankel who is a Junior. Coding gives team members opportunities to learn and apply their knowledge of computer science and programming.  Without coding and programming, none of what we do on our team would be possible.

Electronics 

The Electronics team takes the frame the Build team makes, and gives the robot the necessary equipment, motors, and power to move and sense its environment.  The team integrates sensors and motors into a cohesive system on the electronics plate.  Electronics challenges team members to be organized, dedicated, and hone their technical skills. Electronics is lead by talented senior Noah Hockert. The Electronics and Coding teams work closely together to ensure that systems and components built by the Electronics team are programmed properly.
