I'm 16 years old and a Junior. This is my third year on FTC Team 6282. I am the president of the club, a mechanical engineer, and have some experience as a programmer. I've helped build 2 robots and I really enjoy working with the others as a team. I enjoyed competing in the meets, ILTs and Regionals. In my free time I like to camp and travel with my family, skateboard at the park, play soccer, build legos, and play video games.
I am a 17-year-old student at Simi Valley High School. This year I am a Junior and this is my third year with the team.

I teach computer science and ROP Robotics at Simi Valley High. This is my seventh year volunteering as a mentor for Team 6282. Everything I know about FIRST, I've learned from my son and daughter, who competed for years with FIRST Robotics Competition. Our team has benefited greatly from their after-school visits and from dinner conversations about drive trains, intake systems, sensors and programming. I particularly enjoy grant writing, as it brings attention to all the great work that our talented young students are doing. I love to see their faces light up when they realize how much they have accomplished.
I’m Jessica, a Mechanical Coach for the FTC Team 6282, Simi Valley Robotics. Although my mechanical skills are on point, I made my talented and loving husband Blue write my bio for me. I’m a Design Engineer at Aerojet Rocketdyne working in propulsion systems, such as the AR1 and RS-25 rocket engines. This is my sixth season working with a robotics team. I love the opportunity FIRST provides for me to teach other motivated students tangible engineering career skills such as CAD, professional design processes, manufacturing, project management, presentation skills, and communication.
I'm Blue, a coach for the Simi Valley Robotics team. This is my sixth year heavily involved in mentoring and coaching an FTC team, and my thirteenth year volunteering for FIRST. I work as a Software Engineer for inVia Robotics in Westlake Village, which focuses on mobile robotics solutions for warehouse automation. You can find me at most FIRST events volunteering as the emcee, cheering on teams as they demonstrate their robots on the competition field. I'm extremely grateful to be working with such a dedicated group of students this year who are quick to learn and eager to improve their skills.
