My name is Wes Nickerson and I’m in 7th grade. I have competed in FLL in the past but this is my first year in FTC. I am excited to help our team develop hardware that will succeed in the missions. I joined robotics because I like using creativity to design robots that can accomplish specific tasks. I enjoy robotics because it is challenging and I like working with others interested in robotics. I use knowledge from robotics in my Gateway class and I use the same problem solving skills in every challenge I face. In the future I want to be an engineer and design machines that help people in their everyday lives. I have an older brother and sister and my sister does software at her school and my brother does hardware at his school.
