World Traveling Robotics Genius
Meet Andrew Jesus, Class of 2021. Andrew is a member of Gross Catholic’s award winning robotics team. As a freshman, Andrew traveled to Beijing, China to compete in an international robotics competition where the team placed second overall.
“Robotics has given me the opportunity to meet and work with other students around the world,” states Andrew. He credits Steve Hamersky, robotics team moderator and Gross Catholic faculty member, with providing these opportunities to his students. According to Andrew, “Mr. Hamersky is always there to help me with any academic questions I have and without him, I wouldn’t be able to participate in so many amazing activities.”
Growing up in the Cougar community, Andrew was involved in Junior Cougar programs and attended several Gross Catholic activities as a student at St. Bernadette School. Andrew’s older brothers attended and graduated from Gross Catholic and really enjoyed their experience, which strongly influenced his decision to attend high school at Gross.
Andrew is also active in football, baseball, Marianist LIFE (Living in Faith Experience) and is a student ambassador. Andrew loves the close community at Gross Catholic and appreciates that he knows so many fellow Cougars. He has been able to cultivate so many new talents and learn new skills, and is only in his sophomore year!
After graduation, Andrew plans to attend to attend a four-year college and hopes to study mechanical engineering and aeronautical engineering. He aspires to design and build commercial or military aircraft someday. Andrew knows the education he’s receiving at Gross Catholic under the guidance of Steve Hamersky will help make his dreams a reality someday.
