Bio

Emmaline has participated in FIRST competitions since middle school, where she became inspired to continue pursuing STEM. As a Mechanical Director, she currently prototypes, CADs, and fabricates robot mechanisms, such as the intake and drivetrain. She also works on her team's digital animation submissions. Emmaline has also started her own technology club at an elementary school to introduce students to computer science through Scratch game coding, and teaches JavaScript at a Girls Who Code club. One of her greatest technical accomplishments is a group project called Mac-Pan, written in Java. It is a version of Pac-Man with a character of a pan eating macaroni pellets, complete with different ghosts using individual artificial intelligence to approach the pan in different ways. She wishes to study computer science or robotics in college.
