Pahlychai Thao loves books, writing, solving problems, robots, and anything that flies. She spends her free time reading, daydreaming, trying to apply math and physics concepts to everything in the world, and going for long walks with no destination in mind. Her all-girls robotics team, the Lunar Ladies, won State Champions in 2019 and National Champions in 2020 in the NASA NESSP challenges. Pahlychai is attending Oregon State University next fall to study Electrical Engineering, specializing in robotics.
