Divisions

MorOrganization

Build

Students in the build division are responsible for learning how to safely use tools, design parts using CAD (Computer aided design), and construct a robot using materials and the machines available to them.

Programming

Students in the programming division of Team 1515 learn and teach others how to program in Java, Python, HTML, and React. They also learn how to program the FRC robot collaborately with tools such as Git.

Business

Students in the business division have many responsibilities that directly affect the public’s understanding, image, and perception of our team. Business team members focus on team management and organization. This involves public relations and partner development, corporate sponsorship expansion and grant applications, finance and accounting, Chairman’s Award submission, Business Plan development, Media Production, Event Planning (fundraising, community service, recruitment), and creating a fun and competitive team spirit!

Electrical / Pneumatics

Students in the electrical subdivision learn how to fix electrical issues with the robot and how to properly wire machines together.

Leaders

Jack Schmidt (Build)

I like going to robotics. It’s fun building and manufacturing parts. I feel very accomplished one the job is done and done well. I’m a senior and this is my fourth year on the team.

Zura Nebieridze
(CAD Specialist)

I have been doing Robotics for 2 years, and I learned a lot about engineering part of Robotics as well as what my passions are in general. I always loved math, problem solving, drawing, and listening to music, so in this team I found a perfect position - CAD specialist. It has math, problem solving, drawing components as well as you can listen to music while working, which you can not really do in the wood shop due to safety issues. So, robotics enabled me to learn something new, and apply my passions to it.

Ali Hakam
(Tools and Machine Specialist)

I love Robotics. Ever since I started in robotics as a Freshman, I’ve known it it was going to be my passion. The program is really beneficial for anyone interested in STEM, particularly Technology and Engineering, as it allows students to get a real world experience on problems Engineers face all the time. Throughout our competition seasons, I’ve earned skills in Computer Aided Design, assembly and machining, time management, leadership, problem solving, and countless others. Working with robots on such an advanced scale gives an outlook on to the future of many careers, and hobbies, allowing myself and thousands of others to gain a head start on life and their career choice. There is no program at a high school level that provides what FIRST, and robotics provides.

Eva Danesh
(Business)

This is my third year on Business and my first year as leader! Through this program I have gained many of social skills and a lot of practice with public speaking. I defiantly accredit Robotics for my increase in confidence and determination. I am also a part of KBEV, where I do broadcast journalism and special reports, and I enjoy volunteering at Cedars Sinai Medical Center.

Ariella Simoni
‍(Programming)

Since freshman year, I've been writing robot code and working on the front-end and back-end for our various MorApplications. I am now a senior and I love programming, as well as teaching it to newcomers.

Jett Barber
(Electrical)

I joined robotics in my sophomore year as a part of programming, however during build season I learned how to wire the robot. In my second year I founded and began to lead the new electrics and pneumatics branch, which I still lead now. I enjoy finding new ways to make the robot more efficient and flexible.
