Jordan Johnson, Team Captain, Senior, 2nd year robotics member

I attend Lawton Christian School and Great Plains Technology Center. I love singing, reading, and playing video games.  I plan on attending Oklahoma State University, Tulsa University, Baylor University, or Rice University. I love engineering and felt this would help me be prepared for my future careers. I also think it will be fun and give me more insight in Mechanical Engineering. My goal is to work for NASA and aid in space exploration.

Phillip Shell,  Driver, Senior, 2nd year robotics member

I attend Lawton High School and Great Plains Technology Center. I love hanging out with friends, playing video games, reading, and robotics. I plan on attending Oklahoma State University or Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). This is my second year doing robotics and I’m hoping robotics will help me think and collaborate with other people. I hope to work for Northrop Grumman or Lockheed Martin in Mechanical
Engineering.

Andrew Gonzales,  Notebook and Portfolio Manager, Senior, 2nd year robotics member.

I am home schooled and attend the Great Plains Technology center. I love playing piano, Studying and surfing the internet. I plan on attending Oklahoma State university. I am looking forward to begin working in engineering and see the opportunities that robotics will provide for me. I would love to become a Computer Engineer.

John-Todd Wallace, Team Captain, Senior, 1st year robotics member

I attend Lawton Christian School and Great Plains Technology Center. I love Aerospace Engineering, computers and going to the gym, and most of all laughing. I hope to attend either the Air Force Academy, Oklahoma Sate University or Texas university. As long as I’m working in the field or Aerospace I will be happy. My goal is to work at NASA and help prepare the world for space exploration. until then, I’m happy to stay on earth and watch Game of Thrones.

Marvin Zuniga, Notebook and Portfolio Manager, Senior, 1st year robotics member

I am home schooled and attend Great Plains Technology Center. I chose to go to the Technology center because I love the hands on learning! I have always enjoyed engineering but it wasn’t until I started taking classes here that I began to fully understand the fields of engineering. I am learning so much and am really excited to apply what I have been learning in my engineering classes to robotics.

Franchesca Young, Autodesk Specialist, Junior, 1st year robotics member

I am currently enrolled in Mother of Divine Grace Homeschool and The Great Plains Technology Center. Being born and raised in Lawton Oklahoma, I enjoy being outside and playing sports, especially tennis! My plan after high school to attend OU or OSU with a major in biomedical engineering. The biomedical engineering field is very interesting to me because it applies the engineering principles to the medical field of biology and health care.

Eduardo (Tony) Ponce, Lead Programmer, Junior, 1st year robotics member

I am currently enrolled at MacArthur high school. I along with my fellow team mates I also attend Great Plains Technology Center and am enrolled in pre-engineering classes. This is my second year, and I am currently talking Engineering design and Development. This class will help me with my engineering notebook skills that I feel I am lacking in. I hope to be able to get the semifinals in the most of out tournaments, and win at least one award for each competition. We have a great team, and I hope we can work together to get to Worlds.

Hope Chambers, Website Manager, Junior, 3rd year robotics member

And I’m Hope Chambers!!! This is my first year not being on a team, but I have more of a volunteer role. I love robotics and want to pursue it as a career, so my goal is to go to OSU or Texas Tec with a double major in Electrical Engineering and Computer Engineering with a minor in physics.  At the moment  I am concurrently enrolled at our local college, Cameron University, and I am also home schooled. In my free time I like to go hiking and hanging out with friends (which are better together).  I am currently employed here at the Technology Center as a Cartographer and I manage a website for them as well.
