dsc 0006Hi my name is Zachary Nado and I am the first four-year veteran of Team 2168. I joined my freshman year (2008-9) as the only student who wasn’t a senior. Since then I have learned so much about FIRST and especially love programming, so much so that I am studying it at Brown University at this time.  I know that I wouldn’t be studying at this excellent university without the experiences I gained with FIRST. I hope that I can encourage other students to pursue their dreams and realize their potential as they learn and grow with FIRST. The summer between my junior and senior years I wrote an Android app for scouting the FIRST competitions. This year I have worked with the current Team 2168 programming team students and we have created updates for the app which can be downloaded from the Google Play store at

There are about 1500 downloads for the app this year and we hope to grow that number each year.
