Emma Shi


I'm Emma, and I have 9 years of experience in FIRST (6th year in FTC), and enjoyed learning the disciplines of FIRST. As a co-captain, I led business and outreach aspects of our team, including mentoring our younger team members. Outside of robotics, I like to read, bake, listen to musicals, ski, and play games!

I'm Erik, and I have 3 years of experience in FIRST, and I have a big passion for engineering. As co-captain, I managed the overall architectural design of our robot (mechanical, programming, and CAD), led the drive team, and mentored students in robotics. In my free time, I love spending time with friends, hosting events, and playing ultimate frisbee!
