Bryce Kong

My love for technology and the urge to want to move it forward.


Amren Kareer

My name is Amren. I’m really happy to be on FIX IT. This is my second year on the team.

What motivated you to join FIRST?
Upon request from my parents to join robotics with my brother, I realized I didn’t really do much with myself and I wanted to try something new, so I joined the team to see why he loves it so much, and now I love it too.


Hanson Chan

Hello, my name is Hanson, and this is my third and ( unfortunately ) final year on FIX IT. I am the CAD lead, as well as being a member of the programming team.

What motivated you to join FIRST?
I joined FIRST because I love building and programming things, which is part of Robotics. However,
another crucial factor was the outreach component of FIRST. Service is an essential component in my life,
and FIRST puts a strong emphasis on creating service opportunities.


Ishaan Kareer

IshaanHi, I’m Ishaan. This is my fourth year on the team, and I joined because I like building robots. It’s super fun, and I usually don’t get the time to do hand-on stuff like this at home. I like competition too. I’m also learning a lot, like OnBot java, and robot parts.

What motivated you to join FIRST?
When I first met FIX IT, I saw the team building robots. It looked like a lot of fun, and I wanted to do that as well. Just the fact that building robots motivates me, with a little competition. The team spirit inspires me.


Joel Vermes

JoelThis is my fourth year on the team.

What motivated you to join FIRST?
I was in a robotics class, and my teacher told me I needed something more challenging, so I decided to join a robotics club in the community. I’m glad that I found something that’s more challenging, and that I enjoy!
