The Black & Golden Days
Words from our Alumni
Mari Bray was Team 1280's first captain after our transition to an after school club in 2016! She is also an FLL Alumni. She is currently studying Engineering Management at ASU's Honors College Barrett. This is what she had to say about FIRST "FIRST is so much more than robots- it's the most challenging, exhausting, exciting, rewarding, fun you'll ever have".
Former Team Captain and Drive Coach
Tyler is studying Aerospace Engineering at the Honors College at SDSU! This is what he had to say about FIRST and Team 1280. “It tends to be the things you never expect to fail that always seem to. You know the most likely vectors of failure from common sense and testing, and because of that the failures that come from the places you would never consider are the worst. You can spend days diagnosing the electrical system, the motor controllers, the programming structure and any other obvious place to look, but then the entire problem actually is that you defined a single variable as an integer instead of a float. This program teaches you to be as meticulous as possible, to analyze every level of the entire system and to know your creation inside out, and through that, teaches you to be prepared for anything.”
Former Programming Captain and Driver
Aidan is currently studying Mechanical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines! When asked about the impact of Team 1280 and FRC on his life this is what he had to say “For thousands of years, humans have been creators. We created fire, the wheel, and agriculture. Now we create medicines, rockets, and robots. So please take some time and ask yourself… what will you create?”
