Team Leadership

Noelle Goudy – Head of Chairman’s and Outreach

Noelle is currently a senior on 1218 and has been on the team for four years. She joined when she was a freshman and has become more and more involved since. She has helped with the mechanical, electrical, and Chairman’s teams while on 1218. Noelle’s interest in engineering has become so great that she and Catie McDermott, a fellow teammate, have started to build an airplane with the help of their mentor Peter Randall.  In her senior year, she was named co-captain of Team 1218.

Catie McDermott – Head of Media and Communications

Catie is a senior and has technically been on the team for four years. Although she was not very committed during her freshman year, she has fallen in love with engineering and has become a leader on the team. She decided to follow her passion and took an engineering course with her friend Noelle, with whom she is building an airplane. Catie, the Head of Media, can be found taking pictures at competitions and creating the videos that go on our social media. She is so excited for her final season and can’t wait to meet more people from other teams.

Drake Morewood – Head of Design

Drake is a junior and has been on the team for five years. He has been working on the CAD and fabrication of the robot and is our Head of Design. He spends countless hours working on his computer, with help from his subteam, to create drawing files to send to our sponsor Fabspeed to cut the robot. Drake can be found eating Girl Scout cookies at the CAD desk or telling everyone how what the robot is supposed to look like.

Charlie Randall – Head of Drive Team and Mechanical

Charlie is a junior and the son of Peter Randall, the founder and mentor of 1218. Because of his family’s tight connection to the team, Charlie has been around robotics his entire life. He has been involved in robotics for nearly 16 years. Charlie is one of our best drivers. He can be found blasting music into his earbuds while prototyping and assembling pieces for our robot.

James Liu – Head of Electrical and Programming

James is a junior that has been a part of 1218 for three years. He joined our team as a freshman. James is an international student from China. He has become the head of electrical and spends many hours coding, testing, and debugging our robotics code. His latest challenge has been programming swerve modules. James can be found working his magic and making our robot move once it is assembled.
