Jonah

Seasons: Cascade Effect, Res-Q, Velocity Vortex, Relic Recovery, Rover Ruckus

If you’re on a FIRST Tech Challenge team in Monrovia Unified, I’ve probably helped you with your software. That’s my thing.
This is my third year on the Suit Bots and fifth year in FIRST Tech Challenge. (Previously I was a programmer on Cougarbotics Alpha/Omega at Santa Fe Middle School.) I’ve been to the Houston Championship twice and think Jackson Street BBQ is the only reasonable place to eat within walking distance of Minute Maid Park.

My favorite color is black.

Remember that sponsorship and lesson in applications of dif- ferent resins that we got from Roncelli Plastics? That was me. The organization in the robotics room, our outreach events, and that thing with the guy in the place? Me, too. I make the team go, doing all the thankless jobs. You’re welcome.

This is my third year on the Suit Bots and fifth year in robotics. I matriculated from Cougarbotics Alpha/Omega at Santa Fe prior.

Jonah’s favorite color is black.

Chase

Seasons: Cascade Effect, Res-Q, Velocity Vortex, Relic Recovery, Rover Ruckus

I possess an uncanny ability to channel robots during judging panels. I become our robot, speaking with its voice and animating all its dreams and designs. This performant transformation is so convincing that the judges are often not sure whether I am a real human being.

This is my fifth year in robots, my second with the Suit Bots following three with Clifton’s SWAT Team. I am the first Clifton Robotics graduate ever to join the Suit Bots.

Jonah’s favorite color is programming in English.

Emilio

Seasons: Res-Q, Velocity Vortex, Relic Recovery, Rover Ruckus

In my freshman year with the Suit Bots, the team went to worlds. That was me. And 13 other students.
This is my fourth year in FTC. I was a builder and driver for Cougarbotics Omega for my first two years and was a builder and backup coach for with the Suit Bots last year. This year I’m spearheading our transition to the Rev build system and hope to land Chris Bosh as a spokesperson for the team.

Jonah’s favorite color is black.
