Our team is led by students, guided by mentors. The team is led by four captains: two engineering and two business. They oversee everything the team does and guide the ten sub-team leads. The sub-team leads are in charge of specific aspects of the team, such as community outreach and CAD. Most team members are on more than one sub-team, and we highly encourage students to participate in both business and engineering sub-teams. All of our members develop valuable leadership, communication, and collaboration skills that they will carry with them beyond their time in FRC.
Although student leaders are in charge, each lead and captain works with a mentor specific to their area of the team whom helps ensure the success of their sub-team. The mentors work hard to help us, putting in countless hours so we can keep working.
The four captains are elected by the team members and mentors after submitting applications and giving a speech . Student leads are chosen by the captains after submitting an application.
