My name is Brady Chanpong, I’m in 11th grade, and I’ve been participating in FTC for five years now. I am also a veteran of FLL. I’ve always had a love for science, and I’ve found particular interest in the fields of biochemistry and geophysics I’m a very inquisitive person, and I’ve always tried to find all the answers to my questions.
