Meet the Members


I’m Liz and I’m a junior at Harrison High School. I am the current team president and was operator in 2018. I enjoy making fun of Derek. Currently, am planning on going to Purdue for a degree in mechanical engineering, and I then want to go into a related engineering field. I enjoy painting, lifting, and I am working on writing poetry more often. If I was cereal, I think I would be Frosted Flakes.

I‘m Maya, and I‘m a senior at Harrison High School. I‘m the Vice president of our team this year. I love helping our team organize outreach events, and sharing STEM with the community. I also really like the sense of community I get from being on Harrison Boiler Robotics! The team is like my second family, and being a part of it is something I would not trade for the world. After this year, I plan to go to college and major in Sociology, to prepare for a career in law. I really love to sing; I‘m in two choirs at Harrison High school, and I always have a song stuck in my head. If I was a cereal, think I would be Apple Jacks.


Howdy! My name is Kaylee. I’m proud to say that I am the current business lead. My favorite part about robotics is the connections I make with other people through it. In the three years I’ve been on the team, I’ve found a family. Things I like to do that aren’t STEM related includes painting, writing poems, tending to my snake Pluto, and walking my bearded dragons Lucas and Squishy. If I could be a cereal I’d be oatmeal.
My name is Molly and I‘m currently a senior. I work mainly on the business subgroup and enjoy going to all of the outreach we do, as well as competitions. I plan on going to Ball State University after high school to study architecture. I hope to minor in business and Spanish as well. In my free time play ukulele
and sing. If I were any kind of cereal, I would be fruity pebbles because they’re rainbow colored and rainbows are gay just like me.
I am Evie and I am a sophomore. I work in the business subgroup of our team. I love everything about this team since we all have a similar goal and work to achieve it together. I am debating what I want to do in the future. A hobby of mine is reading, writing, and watching the siblings of mine that behave like animals. If I could be a cereal, I would be some weird off-brand cereal that has random marshmallows from another cereal in it.
I‘m Mason, and I‘m in 10th grade here at Harrison. I work on our website, (this website, hbrlive.comI love coming to competitions and supporting the drive team and robot, it’s always been my favorite part about the season. I‘m planning on pursuing college at either Indiana University or Ball State for Fine Arts and/or Graphic Design. I love to paint, draw, watch movies/shows, play video games, and design (ie: comics, interior, graphic). I can do them all for hours without getting impatient or tired, which is why I love working on this website. If I could be a cereal, I‘d probably be Lucio-Ohs.
The name’s Miguel. Ah, yes, I am in second high school grade which most people simply refer to as “sophomore.” I am not just a wandering traveler, mind you, you KNOW my place is in business. The best part about the team is the people, not just in business, but the whole team; they’re all so different in cool and I love to watch them at work. I’m not sure where my future is going to take me, the only thing left is to try new things and figure it out.  Among my favorite hobbies is dancing, because despite my otherwise “chunky figure,” I found that I can move very gracefully. I have more hobbies than that, but too many to get into. If I had to be any sort of cereal, I would be Fruity Pebbles.

My name is Travis and I am a sophomore at Harrison High School. I am working in every area of the team but I am mostly stationed in business. I enjoy how this team is like my second family and they are fun to work with as well as get to be around. I am planning on being a math teacher and I am enjoying how I have learned a lot of important skills while on this team. If I were a cereal, I would be Raisin Bran because I’m underrated.




I am Trae, a sophomore here at Harrison. My current position on the team is the head of the tech subgroup. One of my favorite things about this team is the sense of fellowship and teamwork. Everyone gets along with just about everyone else, and it’s a really friendly environment overall. In the future, I plan to go to Purdue for a degree in Mechanical Engineering to pursue my dream of being a Mechanical Engineer after college. One of my main hobbies is building, driving, and (inevitably) fixing RC cars. If I could be a cereal, I would be Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

I’m Derek and I am a senior at Harrison High School. I work with the CAD subgroup and the tech subgroup, and I enjoy learning new things on the team. I also enjoy going to competitions. Currently, I am planning on going to Purdue for a degree in mechanical engineering, and I then want to go into a related engineering field. I enjoy longboarding, reading, and I am learning to cook. If I was a cereal, I think I would be Cap’n Crunch.


Yo, my name is Zach and I am a junior this year. I work in the tech subgroup. I love meeting a bunch of new people at competitions and building robots. I honestly have no idea for what I am going to do in the future. However, I love to play mytrumpet and build stuff so I will
see where that goes. If I where a cereal
I would be frosted flakes.


My name is Amelia and I am a sophomore at HHS. I work in the tech group. I love the hands-on aspect of robotics and watching the robot come together.

My name is Nathan G.  I am currently in 9th grade.  I am part of the tech subgroup on the Robotics Team.  What I enjoy about being on the team most is probably getting to know everyone and getting to learn some building techniques and ideas.  What I plan to do in the future is to go to Purdue and possibly either get my master’s or PhD in Astronautical Engineering. I then plan to either work for a private space company or possibly the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.  A hobby of mine is taking apart electronics and seeing how they work, then to put them back together. Lastly, if I could be any cereal, I would be Lucky Charms.

I am Preston. I am a freshman in the tech division for the 2018-2019 school year. I did VEX IQ robotics at Klondike Middle School. It’s exciting moving to First Robotics here at Harrison. I look forward to working with the robot in the 2019 season. In my spare time I enjoy building LEGO and playing games on my PC #pcmasterrace.
