John Holbrook's Ohio University Webpage


Hi, I'm John Holbrook, an undergraduate student at Ohio University simultaneously pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science and a B.A. in Mathematics, with expected graduation in May 2020.

My academic interests center around the use of consumer robotics platforms as an educational tool at the elementary and secondary levels. This manifests itself as volunteering at various educational robotics conpetitions throughout West Virginia and southeastern Ohio (including FLL, FTC, VRC, and VEXU), as writing and resources related to educational robotics on my personal website, and as a small robot I operate which can be driven over the internet.

Some of my other interests include small sailboat racing, sailing instruction, 3D printing, and listening to podcasts.

As Fleet Captain and Safety Officer of the OU Sailing Team, I oversee maintenance of team equipment, help run practices and lessons for new sailors, and ensure team safety at practices and regattas in Athens and throught the midwest.

As Treasurer of the Artificial Intelligence at Ohio University (AIOU) student organization, I oversee organization finances as well as administrating the group's Slack team.
