Hi, I'm John Holbrook, a former co-captain of the Division C team at Huntington High School, the 2015 and 2016 West Virginia Division C Champions.

About

My interests (aside from the obvious "science") include:

  • Robotics (I have experience primarily with the VEX EDR and LEGO Mindstorms product lines, and I used to participate in the VEX Robotics Competition and, earlier, the FIRST LEGO League.)
  • 3D Printing (I have a small, old printer that doesn't work yet)
  • Engineering (as evidenced below, I do mostly build events)
  • Computer Programming (mostly python ['cause I like it] and c++ [for school], but also occasionally java)
  • Website Administration (I run my personal website as well as FaRCX)
  • Music Performance (I play the viola)
  • Parenthetical asides (I like that they add additional information, but make it apparent that the content can be skipped if need be)

...just to name a few.

These days, I'm no longer directly involved in Science Olympiad, but still keep in touch with the community occasionally. I'm now a student at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio, where I'm pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science.
