Patrick Mahoney

Mechanical Engineer

Ever since I was young I had a passion for STEM, when I got the chance to found a robotics team at my high school I jumped on it. For four years I have been a part of FIRST Robotics Competition team 3729. I led the team in the process of identifying team objectives, roles of team members, and schedules. As part of the design team I drove sub-team discussion regarding the design processes which included mechanisms and drive systems. I taught myself to use CAD programs and then created workable models in Autodesk Inventor. I used the designs to fabricate parts and assemble them into competition robots. My job as a black belt instructor at A-Team Taekwondo requires me to coordinate lesson plans and instruct children and adults. I interact with the customers daily in regards to purchases, payments, and lessons. At boy scouts I take part in planning and organizing events and projects. I work in and lead teams to run a variety troop meetings.
