This is my first year on team FIX IT and so far I’m really enjoying it.
Why did you join FIX IT?
I joined FIX IT because my mom found the team online and I started to take a bigger interest in robotics and computing at the time. I’ve played around with electronics and computing throughout my life but FIX IT was my first chance to go a level higher.

To learn to make basic CAD models using OnShape and some basic programming.
Jasper is 14 years old and this is his first year on the team, and so far he has been enjoying it a lot. He heard about FIX IT from his Gramma’s boyfriend who is a Makerspace member.

My name is Amren. I’m really happy to be on FIX IT. This is my third year on the team.
What motivated you to join FIRST?
I realized I didn’t really do much with myself and I wanted to try something new. My brother was on this robotics team called “FIX IT” and I decided to join and see what it’s all about. It changed my life and I haven’t looked back.
