My name is Ethan Swoyer. I am 15 years old, and I have been homeschooled in Airville, PA from day one of my schooling. I started with FIRST because I went to an open house of Techbrick Robotics’ FLL group and my parents decided to start an FLL team. I spent five years in FLL and made it to States competition for four of them. I then decided to move up to FRC because I wanted to try something new at the age of 14. Some of my other hobbies are computer repair, reading, playing and listening to music, and working in my dad’s shop and garage. It’s incredible what being in FRC has done for me. Before I joined, I knew how to use the tools, but I had to do it under my dad’s supervision because I wasn’t comfortable with them and needed to gain some experience. Now, I have actually disassembled and repaired two of my family’s computers myself and have a friend that I am hopefully going to repair a laptop for as well. I often go to the garage and work on our Jeep myself, only having to ask my dad if I can. This program has given me the knowledge, experience, and ability to do many of the things that I do, even to the point of my becoming the lead electrical for our team!
