Iron Reign - About Us

Iron Reign has been a robotics team for about 7 years now. We have won awards in multiple competitions, spanning from FLL (First Lego League), FTC (First Tech Challenge), to The Google Lunar X Prize challenge. The team today comprises of mostly Seniors and Juniors, and we hope to reach our very high goals, not only in competition, but also in our real world lives.

Meet the members:

Caitlin Rogers

Hello, I am Caitlin Rogers, and I have been a part of Iron Reign since 7th grade, about 6 years. Robotics has provided me with a focus for my education at SEM, so I know that what I'm learning matters.

Jayesh Sharma

Hello my name is Jayesh Sharma, and I have been part of Iron Reign for about 7 years now. Robotics is an integral part of my outside life and, with my future aspirations in engineering fields, has taught me much of the fundamentals needed in the field. The social lessons taught, including gracious professionalism, will also be valuable in the social aspects of life as well. The importance of FTC will help me with the intellectual and social points of my future.

Max Virani

Halloo! I'm Max. I've been doing robotics since before I can remember, and have been in Iron Reign since the year it was created as an FLL team, 7 years ago as of now.My robotics experience has helped me get ahead of many in coding, building, and general engineering, and I hope to someday work in biomedical engineering. In the meantime, randomness is a favorite hobby of mine. Banana.

Omar Ramirez

Hey, my name's Omar Ramirez. This is my fourth year with the Iron Reign team, and it has been a great experience. I enjoy the coding part of it, since I want to enter a field of computer science. Being around people helps my sub-par social skills, and I have had many opportunities to speak in front of audiences, which I actually enjoy now.

Tycho Virani

Hello, I am Tycho Virani, and I have been on the team for 7 years. I'm the youngest person on the team and have seen the effect robotics has had on my life. The ability for me to understand coding and engineering before possibly joining the field will give a huge advantage and I look forward to my knowledge advancing as I gain experience each consecutive year in competition.

Darshan Patel

Hi, I am Darshan Patel. I have been a part of Iron Reign Robotics for three years now, and I have learned quite a bit. I believe robotics is important to my future because it has increased my teamwork skills, my ability to visualize ideas, and allowing me to have hands on experience with building and coding. I enjoy doodling and sketching buildings and cars in my free time and hope to become a professional architect after obtaining a college degree.

Ethan Helfman

Hi, I'm Ethan Helfman. I've been a part of Iron Reign since 4th grade, in FLL, FTC, and Moonbots. I am a sophomore at SEM. I've learned a lot through robotics, mostly how to break stuff. I like working on the robot and working on the blog.

Evan Daane

I'm Evan. I like to generally have fun. I also have a thing for breathing. I have been on Iron Reign since 4th grade for FTC and FLL. I love working on this team with these amazing other human beings, who arn't lizards, and who have helped me get through any issue I've had. I like to build on the robot and work with others.

Charlotte Leakey

Hi, I'm Charlotte. I've participated in robotics since 6th grade, first in FLL, and now in FTC. I am a sophomore at SEM and my main focus in robotics is building. I am a new member of Iron Reign.

Janavi Chadha

Hi, I am Janavi Chadha. I have been a part of Iron Reign Robotics for the past year. I am a softmore at SEM. I have learned a lot about coding in the past year, and really enjoy working it.
