Adam Thiel

HEAD MENTOR
Mr. Adam Thiel

“FIRST® offers students an opportunity to be a part of a holistic problem that is such difficulty and rigor that students can not fail to learn and gain an understanding of a variety of content and skills that will serve them well beyond their time as a member of Nicolet FEAR.”

Jessie Barnett

TEAM RELATIONS HEAD MENTOR
Ms. Jessie Barnett

“It’s so empowering to see students excited to learn! I really enjoy the application of mathematics that building a robot requires. I also believe project based learning is much more meaningful than traditional memorization and problem solving, so it’s a great way for me to have fun helping my students do and use the same math that I teach. FEAR allows us to develop ideas of STEM curriculum in a realistic setting, and it’s good to know students can make real decisions about their futures working with our team.”
