Mentors
Brandon Ryan

Brandon Ryan – Helps guide the students in the mechanical principles.

“Mr. Dicks said it would be cool to join Saber Robotics team. He said “Hey would you help me with the robotics team at Franklin?” and I said “Sure, Why not? Sounds interesting” and I was right. I hope that those kids would realize, that they can face challenges without Dave’s help, however we are here to always guide our team! “

John Robb

John Robb – Helps guide the students in the mechanical principles.

“I got a call one evening from a friend of my son, asking if I could give “a little” engineering advice to his robotic team. I soon found out that there is no such thing as “a little” … these people are DRIVEN. I was so impressed by the work ethic, dedication, teamwork, and engineering knowledge these “kids”, and mentors, exhibited, that I felt compelled to give more than just “a little” help. After a few evenings working with the team, I was hooked. I have additional ties to the Saber team because both of my sons attend Franklin High School and it is also my Alma mater. I hope my “real world” experience will help to expand the engineering principles and practices already being implemented by the students. Win or lose, the Saber Robotics students can be proud of the fact that they are integral in the design and manufacture of their robot.”

Andrew Bustle

Andrew Bustle – Helps with the construction of a minibot and fabrication of robot parts

“I visited the team on one of their Saturday meeting and one of the mentors invited me to join, then my son encouraged me as well. I could not resist. I was surprised on how complex the robot designs were and the amount of time that was given to the team to meet the challenge. I remember the excitement the team had during our successful minibot test. I hope that the team makes it to Nationals again.”

Cindy Strommen

Cindy Strommen – Helps guide the students in the fundraising community events, awareness and team spirit.

“I have a passion for science and community involvement, but the most important reason is to be involved in my son’s activities. Robotics is very unique in that it teaches students much more than how to build a robot – they are learning valuable business skills, team work, community involvement and leadership skills. I hope that team would have fun! Learn from others, work as a team, and learn the value of giving back to the community”

Mr. Dicks 1

Michael Dicks – is a Supervisor and Solid Modeling (Inventor). General Mentor

“I heard about robotics at the competition in 2008 from another Mentor from Waukesha’s team and I thought it would be cool to watch the development of something designed and built by students, plus the satisfaction they all feel when it’s over. I was able to talk a buddy into joining as well. What surprised me the most, is how intense and stressful it can be, how whipped I am at the end of the week, however I enjoy the fact that the kids gain leaderships skills needed to become successful after high school”
