Youth Mentor: Pragya Prakash

 I am in 12th grade, and this is my sixth year participating in a FIRST robotics program. I did two years in FLL, and this is my fourth season in FTC. As software lead, I’ve managed and built this team’s code over the past few years, with most notable contributions in odometry, narrow ML vision detection/attribution, teleop automation, and smaller algorithms: ie angle adjustment. I’ve also planned and executed most of the outreach events, with an amassed 5,000+ people reached, including both professionals in STEM and students. I work on management and have contributed to all subteams. I look forward to my future in STEM and believe FIRST has prepared me well.
