“It’s up to you to work with them to make it interesting for them to want to pursue engineering. You need to instill the passion for tools and science, as much as they now have for nonsense.”

Dean Kamen

Team #3142 would like to thank all of our mentors, parents and sponsors for the hard work, long hours, and help that you have given to our team throughout these last four years. Without the guidance that you have given, we would not have been able to achieve many of the accomplishments that we have. It is your faith in us that inspires us to work hard and make you proud.

We give special thanks to our Coach, Mr. James Hofmann. Without the effort and hours you have devoted to us, especially over these last four years, we would not have a team. We would like to thank you for being available everyday, at all hours, supervising us and leading us to success. To read about his efforts. Click Here.
