Meet the Mentors

“Do not train a child to learn by force or harshness; but direct them to it by what amuses their minds, so that you may be better able to discover with accuracy the peculiar bent of the genius of each.” ― Plato

Team 1817 is unique in one special way: the mentor-student relationships. The majority of the mentors on our robotics teams are college students; only a few years older than the students. This age difference allows not only an inspired yearning for higher education but also builds friendships with the students, unlike any seen on other teams.

Current Mentors:

Andrew “Andy” Kennedy

Hayden Mcgaugh

Ysidro “Sid” Perez

Avery Reynolds

Joseph “Joey” White
