Hello, my name is Akhilesh, this is my second year with TDT, and I’m looking forward to great things this year. I am currently a sophomore in the Engineering Magnet at Middleton High School. I plan on being on the mechanical team and working on the CAD of the robot, and I’m excited to learn many new things.

IMG_7357Hi my name is Shrey, and I have been participating in FIRST since I was 9 years old.  I started out in FLL, and have also participated in FRC but my passion is in FTC and being a member of Team Duct Tape.  I am the Mechanical Lead, and after attending the World Championship last season, we as a team, are more motivated than ever to go back and experience it again.  

IMG_7345Hi, my name is Tanmay, and this is my second year with Team Duct Tape. Some of my hobbies are playing outside, video games, and origami. I also like to make YouTube videos. I have two pet cockatiels that are older than me. My favorite sport is basketball, and I play it almost every day. I’m really looking forward to spending another amazing year in FIRST.

IMG_7351Hi, my name is Maalav, and I am in the 11th grade. This is my fourth season with Team Duct Tape and seventh year with FIRST. I enjoy programming, astronomy, photography, and anything to do with aerospace. I am looking forward to working on the programming and mechanical teams this season and I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish!

IMG_7347Hi I’m William! I am a Sophomore at Middleton High School in the Biomedical magnet. I enjoy tinkering with electronics, building/flying model aircraft, riding my bike, and most importantly, I love Raccoons! This will be my second year in First Tech Challenge. Working with robotics is fun and I look forward to another successful year as part of Team Duct Tape.

IMG_7310Hi, I am Jack Whitlock, and I am in 8th grade. I have not worked with Team Duct Tape or FIRST before. This is my first time on a competitive team. Although I have done other non-competitive, robot related activities before. I play the piano and like to program my Lego Mindstorm. My favorite subjects in school are math and science. I also like listening to audiobooks.


IMG_7354Hi, I am Prayuj Tuli, and I’m a junior at Sickles High School, with this being my 3rd year as part of Team Duct Tape. My favorite hobbies are programming, reading, math, and physiological studies. In the future I plan to become a neurologist and be the first to do a brain transplant. For the team, I work as the go-to accountant. Managing legal expenditures and finances is another one of my hobbies. Overall, I hope to have another exciting year with TDT.
