John Holbrook's Ohio University Webpage
Hi, I'm John Holbrook. I graduated from OU in May of 2020 with a B.S. in Computer Science and a Minor in Mathematics.
I'm mostly interested in educational robotics as a tool for engineering and CS. While at OU, I spent a lot of my free time volunteering at robotics competitions (FLL, VRC, VIQC, and others), mostly in my home state of West Virginia but sometimes in southeast Ohio as well. I also have some robotics resources available on my website.
In the summers of 2019 and 2020, I interned at the NASA Katherine Johnson IV&V Facility's Educator Resource Center in Fairmont, WV. While there, I worked with a team of interns and full-time staff to plan and teach introductory robotics camps for students aged 6-14 in six cities throughout West Virginia. In 2020, I helped the camps shift to a virtual format due to the COVID-19 pandemic. I also helped to organize and run the 2019 Mountain State Invitational, a FIRST® LEGO® League tournament featuring 62 teams and over 1000 participants from 11 countries.
As of September 2020, I'm working at the ERC as a full-time Americorps member, running an effort to bring VEX robotics teams to schools in West Virginia without existing robotics programs.
Some of my other interests include small sailboat racing, sailing instruction, 3D printing, and listening to podcasts.
While at OU, I was an active member of the student-run club sailing team. During my three years on the team's executive board, we drastically increased our recruitment of new and experienced sailors, (re)grew into a fully-fledged university club sport, and won our first regatta in over 10 years. At various times, I served as the team's president, safety officer, and fleet captain.
