Christian  Brothers  High  School  Class  of  2021

Carter Schmidt

​Carter has been with the club since its inception. He is our “mad scientist” and always thinking outside the box. He is always looking to find another angle, loophole, or strategy. Carter displays a strong affinity in software engineering and taught himself C++. Carter’s programming proficiency allowed the club to advance to an all-digital control platform from analog. He is well versed in Windows and Linux operating systems, with years of experience in securing both home systems, and servers. The more challenging a problem gets, the more his determination increases. During his down time, Carter focuses his resources on obtaining the prestigious Eagle Scout achievement, running cross country, and learning ethical hacking. Carter reached the Eagle Scout designation in 11/2019. ​
