Meet Our Mentors

We are extremely lucky to have three teachers at Marlborough who are able to help us in the process of designing and coding our robot!

Mr. Andrew Witman

Marlbots Coach, STEM+ Program Co-Head

Hi, I’m Mr. Witman, and I'm the coach for the Marlbots. I actually started robotics when I was in high school on FRC team #190, and I was on the pep squad. I even played the trumpet at the world finals. I started teaching robotics with an FLL team in the Bronx where I was at for three years, and I have been at Marlborough ever since - 12 years, now!

Dr. Darren Kessner

Computer Science Instructor, STEM+ Program Co-Head

Hi, I'm Dr. Kessner and I love math and computer science.  In my spare time I like to study projectile motion, usually with multiple objects.  Ask me and I'll show you how to throw, catch, and iterate.

Dr. Lee Mirsky

Science Instructor

Nina (She/Her)

Co-Captain

Hi, my name is Nina and I am a Senior. This is my fifth year in FTC and my second as co-captain of the Marlbots! I am the resident baker on the Marlbots and am always down to make sweat treats for any occasion. On the team I help with all technical aspects of the robot as well as manage our social media pages. I also help organize our outreach. Outside of robotics I like to dance, read, and think about robotics!

Hi, I'm Dr. Mirsky! When I started teaching at Marlborough seven years ago, I thought I would just be teaching physics. Six years ago, I discovered the fun and excitement of robotics at Marlborough and have been a mentor to the teams ever since. It is so rewarding to work with such a motivated group of students, and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season!
