Our Team

These people are the reason for our success and expertise.
Alex FergusonPresident

Alex is a mechanical engineering junior specializing in design and management. As President of the organisation, he oversees its direction and ensures it serves it purpose. He has been competing in robotics competitions ever since middle school and has a plethora of skills to teach to and mentor new roboticists and enthusiasts. These experiences have led to his form belief that projects are the best way for engineers to learn and test their skills, not only in isolation, but in conjunction with other disciplines. With that in mind he hopes to give the students of UNT the opportunity to learn engineering the proper way.

Sebastian KingVice President

Sebastian is a post-baccalaureate world languages student, with a degree in Computer Science.

Lauren CavesSecretary

She’s a woman of action, eternal optimist, and a passionate speaker. As an undergraduate mechanical engineering student, her enthusiasm for the art of engineering is vast and the hunger for discovery drives her motivation which has led to many successes during her undergraduate years. Although not easily. She has gone through many failures and complicated situations which shaped a new passion to inspire the youth and other students to overcome diversity and really fight for their dreams. She believes everyone is destined for greatness, and that it's important to not let the minor roadblocks we stumble upon crush the stars we wish upon.
