Cool Fact: Philip loves to laugh. Lots of laughing.

Philip Liu is a sophomore at Westlake High School and has been highly involved with STEAM programs since a young age. This has lead to the development of many skills such as leadership, communication, and perseverance. In Chap Research, Philip has worked on the Chap Measuring Press (CMP) and is currently leading the Chap Research Outreach Management Application (CROMA). He is a member of 2468 Team Appreciate and works in multiple sub-systems. He assists in mechanical aspects (robot design, CAD, and manufacturing) and manages documentation for the outreach team. With all the generous privileges presented to him, he uses his knowledge, so far, to mentor younger teams and teach in the community. Outside of robotics and school, Philip loves to laugh. He practices TaeKwonDo, football, basketball, and dance with his friends. He gets his work done in a happy manner and gains motivation from the quote: “where there’s a will, there’s a way.”
