Hi, I’m Alex. I was the lead organizer for SWATposium for 2016 and 2017 and during Build, I help the design and build team. When I’m not working on something related to robotics, I enjoy watching The Blacklist and going for runs – to Timmies.

I’m the programming lead and my subteam is responsible for coding the robot. This includes essential functions, such as driving, as well as more complex commands that might involve the use of sensors. These can improve the robot’s overall accuracy and efficiency.

Hey, I’m Ari! I adore traveling and meeting new people. It’s my goal to travel to all 7 continents in the world, (I’m currently at 5). I’m a pretty bubbly person and like to laugh a lot. I listen to a ton of classic rock and bad 2000s music, Backstreet Boys where you at, and would do anything for a 2-scoop cone of Purdy’s Death by Chocolate ice cream.
