Hi. I’m Alex Beaver.
I am a student and programmer from Silicon Valley.
I have been very heavily involved with my FIRST Robotics Team: Team 100 Wildhats from Redwood City. Ever since freshman year, I have taken a role in leading the software subteam as well as the entire team.
2019 Dean’s List Finalist – San Francisco Regional
For the 2019 year, I was one of two Dean’s List Finalists for the San Francisco Regional. The Dean’s List Finalist award recognizes leadership and supporting the FIRST Robotics community.
I started a blog to help other FRC teams learn how to start and improve themselves. When I started a VEX Robotics team, it was difficult for us to figure out what we needed to do to be successful. This was largely due to teams being secretive with their practices.
I quickly realized that it would be better for my team and other teams for me to openly shared what I learned during my time on FRC. My blog is the solution, and it has helped thousands of people have a more effective robotics program!
