Corey Applegate

This is my fifth year as the coach.

Bridget Applegate
Medical consultant, and morale

This is my fourth year as a mentor. I learned about the team through my husband, who is the coach, and my kids who are on the team. I like helping the team build relationships within the team, and between teams. I also like seeing the robot go from nothing to a working robot, its so cool!

Nick "Thing 2" Asplund
Hi I'm Nick. I am a mentor. This is my Eighth year on the team, seventh as a mentor. I joined robotics my senior year because I thought it would be fun and I am good at building and fixing things. I am a mechanic at Automotive Performance Center and I can't wait for another exciting robotics season!!
Zach "Thing 1" Asplund
I joined the team in 2011 as a senior and I have been mentoring ever since. This is my eighth year on the team and I really enjoy helping the students learn how to use all the hand tools and machines to build the robot.
Carter Calhoun
Media and Programming Mentor, Drive Coach
David Dale
Animation, Web, Programming

This is my sixth year as a mentor, and my ninth overall. I am here to pass on my skills in programming, animation, and web design. I joined the team because of the opportunity to put some of those skills to work and learn to program, because Apollo has no computer programming classes. Being on the team has made me passionate about wanting to see kids pursue STEM careers.

Lori Dale
Robomom, and administrative assistant

This is my eighth year with the team. I enjoy being around the creativity, fun, energy and excitement of the team. I love feeling like I am helping teens find a place to belong, and their career direction in life. FIRST has an expression "More Than Robots", I work with the "More Than" parts of the team.

Dave Fischer

This is my 3rd year as a mentor. I have a background in electrical maintenance. After my daughter and I were invited to join the team for the summer, we found that the team is very welcoming, active, and works well together. This made us decide that we want to continue with the team! I enjoy helping the students with the building process of the robot and seeing what they can accomplish.

Tyler Fischer
Graphic Artist and Designer

Tyler has been a big part of the Gearheads team look, designing our team shirts in 2019 and 2020 and our buttons last year.  He was in the process of designing the buttons for this year when the season was suspended.  He has also updated our team student and mentor brochures, and thank you cards. He is also one of the people that helped Natalie design the team avatars in 2019 and 2020.  We love the fresh look that he brings to the team!

Aaron Guck
Graphic Artist

For many years, Aaron was the person who designed the team shirts and brochures.  He also had a hand in designing the team webpage.  In the last couple of years he has been the supervisor/consultant for Tyler our new graphic designer.  Aaron runs his own graphic design business and an aerial photography (via drone) business.
