Our Coaches & Mentors
Our coaches and mentors consist of teachers, parents, Trobots alumni, and other community professionals. Come join the team!
While we are entirely student lead, our coaches and mentors give advice and demonstrate different techniques as well as ensure the safety of all team members. Our coaches and mentors are incredibly vital to the success of our team as many of them contribute on a weekly or daily basis.
Meet The Team
Mr. Kraviec is a math and science teacher at PHHS that knew just as much as you do about competition robotics when he co-founded the team with Brian Turner in 2013. He loves strategy, statistics, backcountry camping, and his beautiful wife, Janie.
Brad works for Keyhole Software and joined the Trobots in 2018. He became the Programming Mentor in 2020 which helped the Trobots take a leap forward in code design. Brad had two kids in Trobots, Ethan (2020 Grad) and Adira (2023 Grad).
Lead Non-Technical Mentor
Melinda works for VMLY&R as Director of Data Science and joined the Trobots in 2019. She helps the Trobots as need be. She is married to Brad and mom to Ethan (2020 Grad) and Adira (2023 Grad).
