About Us

Team Captain
My name is Ty, and I am 16 years old. I am a homeschooled senior, and this is my fourth year on Protostars. Outside of robotics, I enjoy building with LEGO™️, 3-D printing, and playing drums. I have a sister in college and a Labrador named Chewie, named for the Chewbacca-like sounds he makes. When I graduate high school, I’m hoping to get a bachelor’s degree in robotics engineering.

My name is Harrison, and I am a Junior at Jefferson High School. I have two older sisters. I was introduced to robotics im 5th grade by my soccer coach, Matt Heinze. This is my 4th season on Protostars 17097; each year gets more exciting! When not designing robots, working on electronics, or 3D printing, I am involved in the JHS band playing the sax and also spend time helping on the family ranch. My plan after high school is to pursue engineering at Montana State University.
