Competitive / Educational Robotics

My story with robotics has been long. I started playing with the LEGO Mindstorms stuff when I was 10 or so, and did a lot with that through 4H (fair projects, some state competitions). When I just got into high school, I started FRC team #4213, which I captained, and a few FLL teams which I mentored.

After high school I took a hiatus from FRC (which I recommend you do as well, if you're at that stage in life), and did Formula SAE.

When I moved out to work for Dean himself, I started mentoring FRC #501.

Here's a number of projects or things that I've done in this sphere. I highly recommend you check out EveryCalc. It's an awesome tool.
