Mark Hoppel

Mark Hoppel was a member of TechBrick FTC Team 7 for five years and FRC Team 3941 for its inaugural season.  He joined TechBrick with a nervous interview in eighth grade, and grew with the robotics program learning engineering skills like programming, as well as how to build a team.  He is currently a freshman at the University of Maryland studying Mechanical Engineering.  At College Park, he is also helping mentor Rookie Team 4464, The Illusion.  Team 4464 won the Rookie All Star Award at the DC Regional Competition, and will go to the World Championships in St. Louis.  Mark has now earned the distinct honor of being part of two Rookie All Star Teams.  FIRST has been a tremendous help to Mark’s education, first by inspiring his passion for Engineering, but also helping him afford college: he is the recipient of an ASME FIRST scholarship as well as a University of Maryland scholarship.
