Anna is in 10th grade at Eden Prairie High School, and this is her first year in FTC. Her primary roles on the Lazybotts are building and Engineering Notebook manager. She joined because Ursula, a previous Lazybotts team member, recommended the team to her after she saw her get very enthralled with the live-stream of the FRC North Star tournament. She'd like to be a Wildlife Biologist when she grows up, but she's debating that with something that has engineering or writing.

As our team moved into our second year together, we began to develop an outreach and team sustainability plan which included visiting several elementary school classes to demonstrate robotics and share our FIRST experience. Part of that strategy included a name change. As a team we decided Lazybotts would be a catchy name to give our team, but also knew that to make it work we would have to be anything but lazy. We found a drawing of a "Lazy Robot" via a Google search that we thought would be a perfect icon for our team, so we contacted the artist, Sean Smith, who granted us permission to use his drawing on all our team materials.
