Jack Jaros

Hi, I’m Jack Jaros and I am a freshman at Hermantown High School. I joined FTC so I could continue expanding my knowledge through the F.I.R.S.T. program and have fun. I really enjoy hunting, fishing, and four wheeling. This is my fifth year in robotics. I have been in F.I.R.S.T. Lego League for 2 years and this is my third year in FIRST Tech Challenge. I love the challenge of making a robot solve challenges. I love trying to figure how to build a robot to solve a problem and figure out how to solve problems. I love all aspects of FTC.

I also like trying to think of solutions to robot game challenges. In my spare time, I enjoy playing video games, playing the trumpet, skiing, hiking, and reading.  I’m looking forward to our second year as an FTC team.
