ABOUT The Cyberhawks
The Cyberhawks are a FIRST Tech Challenge team. This is our first year doing FTC. We have 3 team members, 2 mentors and are looking to expand. Some of us did FLL for 2 years then wanted to learn beyond Lego robotics. We are a home team ran out of a garage in Hermantown Minnesota.
Team members and Coach
Hi, I’m Jack Jaros and I go to Hermantown middle school. I joined FTC so I could continue learning through the F.I.R.S.T. program and have fun. I really enjoy baseball, hunting, fishing, and four wheeling.This is my fourth year in robotics. I have been in F.I.R.S.T. Lego League for 2 years and this is my second year in FIRST Tech Challenge. I love the challenge of making a robot solve challenges. I love trying to figure how to build a robot to solve a problem and figure out how to solve problems.
My name is Ethan and I’ve been in FIRST for four years. I am an 8th grader at Hermantown Middle School. This is my fourth year programming and building robots for FIRST. I like the logistics of programming and enjoy working with computers. I also like trying to think of solutions to robot game challenges. In my spare time, I enjoy playing video games, playing the trumpet, skiing, hiking, and reading. I’m looking forward to our second year as an FTC team.
I am Mateo Sandoval and I am in 8th grade in Hermantown middle school. I was in robotics for 4 years and really enjoy all parts of robotics especially CAD and community outreach. I was involved in FIRST Lego League at our school for two years and desired to upgrade my knowledge to the FTC level so I joined this team. I also manage the team’s social media accounts. When I am not doing robotics I like playing soccer, video games, playing my saxophone, and playing with my puppy. My favorite food is chinese.
My name is Jonah Wright and this is my very first year in FTC and FIRST altogether. I go to Hermantown Middle School and I’m in eighth grade. I found out about FTC and the team through Jack, Mateo, and Ethan. This year I heard that the team was looking for people and I decided that I should try it. Other things that I like to do besides robotics are, ATV riding, soccer, basketball, snowboarding, snowmobiling, and water skiing.
