HRT greatly depends on the expertice and knowledge of our mentors. With their help, Team 670 have evolved to what we are today.
Mr. Hutchins started off observing a season, but soon joined the mentor team with the hopes of lending the team his experience in design and management. He is currently focused on the software control of the robot. He graduated from Stanford BSEE (Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering) and MSEE (Masters of Science in Electrical Engineering).
Ms. Ren has always loved hands-on activities so she joined the FIRST robotics team (624) at her high school. She went on to study mechanical engineering at MIT and had worked on several robotics projects during her 4 years there. It is also her passion to work with girls in high school who are interested in STEM fields and to help them grow along the way. She is good with basic engineering concepts, CAD, design methodologies and rapid prototyping.
Mr. Eaton started mentoring Homestead Robotics in 2007, after his son joined the club as a Freshman. Through his years of working as a dedicated mentor, he has contributed extensively to the design and construction of the internal components of our robots. He has a BS in Engineering and a MS in Electrical Engineering from Caltech.
