Clarion’s team consists of four divisions – Engineering and Building, Marketing and Exhibit, Programming, and Engineering Notebook.
The Engineering and Building team, headed by Matthew Mitchell, designs and builds the robot for the given task – fighting a mock industrial fire.
The marketing and exhibit team, headed by Chris Pozgay, is responsible for organizing field trips, acquiring sponsorships and funds, creating an exhibit, and marketing the robot to a panel of judges.
The programming team, headed by Haven Lefay, creates the computer code that is then downloaded to a controller and used to drive the robot.
Team members Sarah Touster and Zach Lavin created the engineering notebook to document and record the entire process of designing and building the robot, writing the code, and designing and building the marketing exhibit.
The CEO (Chief Executive Officer) of Clarion Robotics systems is Austin Stivanson. He is responsible for the overall operation and management of Project Phoenix.
COO (Chief Operating Officer) Josh Craig is second in command and is in charge of day-to-day operations at the company.
Della Kurtzhals and Brian Burford serve as advisors for the team
“This is an excellent real-life learning experience that has been made possible for our students by our sponsors,” said Kurtzhals.
“We would like to thank Best Robotics, The Elliot Group, MatLab, Grove City College, Clarion Area School District, and all of our current and previous sponsors for all of their support.”
