What We Do

Our teams give students the opportunity to learn many skills- whether it be electrical, mechanical, engineering, design, programming, web/app development, marketing, or fundraising, every student gets the opportunity to find what their best at, and to learn more about any facet of the team. 

On top of that, every student in our program learns invaluable life skills, whether it be how to talk to businesses, how to talk to judges, how to write formally, or so much more, each student comes away  from the team more prepared for life
