Lydia was part of the Outliers team last year and she believes that it was such a good opportunity for me to explore her interests in the world of engineering, specifically with electrical and computer science fields, not only with other students but mentors as well. She has looked into several computer science events and real world applications on her own time and does electrical projects when given materials and time. Being on the team has and continues to help her refine those skills and get tools she needs to be a part of that industry in the future.
Maxine is a junior, and enjoys engineering and other STEM activities in school. Outside of school she spends time doing martial arts. A part of the mechanical team in the 2016-2017 season, she wanted to continue to do the things about the team she enjoys such as working on the robot and being on drive team.
May is an 11th Grader, The work that the Outliers do is great work! And people should hear about it, so they can support the students in every aspect of their experience. May wants to make sure the Outliers get the attention they deserve and are portrayed correctly to the school and the community.
Olivia is currently a junior at Baxter Academy and this will be her third year on the Outliers. She enjoys being on the Robotics team because it is a great opportunity to be exposed to all kinds of engineering and grow friendships in the process. Outside of robotics Olivia is part of two orchestras, playing the viola, and loves snowboarding.
Owen Blake is a junior at Baxter Academy. He's been on the robotics team for one year already working in the electrical subgroup. He joined the team because he felt it would prepare him for college and his future career while also being in a field that he is interested in. Outside of school, Owen is very interested in music and other projects that involve electrical work, especially when music is also incorporated. He is excited for the year to come and hopes to branch his skills into other fields on the team.
Abbey is a sophomore and this is her first year on the Outliers Robotics team. She is interested in mechanics and electronics, she has minimal knowledge but is excited to learn more. Outside of robotics she is the lebro on her volleyball team.
Charla is in 10th grade and is interested in Art, Tech, and Nature. Team Interests are Programming, Building and Electronics.
Elaina is a 10th grader and hopes to someday work with biomedical engineering and flying airplanes. She is very interested in learning how to drive the robot and how it works and working with a team to create something that can complete a task.
Emmalyn is a sophomore who enjoys engineering. She joined the team because she was interested in building and working with electronics.
Mark is in grade 10 and has many interests that would help him on the robotics team. He works on cars and almost anything with a motor, he also like to take apart anything that breaks to try and find the problem. He joined the team because he wanted to be able to pursue what he enjoys which is problem solving, and building complicated things that may be a challenge. Mark also used to play sports such as football for 5 years, baseball for 10 years, and basketball for 3 years. He believes that will help him do better under pressure, and move fast when he needs to.
Elwen, a freshman, does not yet have a designated role. She has had some exposure to FRC via family. In the past, she has been a generally more humanities and art-oriented person, and sees the robotics team as an opportunity to broaden her horizons, further explore STEM subjects and gain more experience with things she might not otherwise.
Alex Willette is a 9th grader who is very interested in mechanical engineering. The thing that interests him about the team is that he can learn to program and learn how to build a robot.
