Cyborg of the Week: Francisco Chavez

How long have you been in the team?

3 years, since sophomore year

What current year are you in?


Why did you join robotics?

Mostly to learn more about programming, I had an interest in technology.

What made you stay?

I liked the members on the team and I felt I could learn more than I already knew.

How do you feel you contribute to the team?

Before, we had 3 programmers, and we each specialized in our own program. If one of us wasn’t here, we would all fall behind because we didn’t understand what their job was. We all had to be present and dependable.

What have you learned over the years?

Programming C++, vision tracking, and before joining I didn't really understand how to program in a way that I could control things.

Favorite memory in Robotics?

Sophomore year, when we found out we were going to worlds, it was a close call and we were really pleasantly surprised.

Fun fact about yourself?

I’ve recreated the game Pong in every programming language I have learned.
