Our team is led by a set of dedicated students who are responsible for directing the team and specific divisions of the team; they are tasked with inspiring future generations of Narwhals and maintaining the enivornment that furthers our mission of providing a positive high school team experience through robotics while inspiring intellectual creativity, fostering a passion for science, technology, and engineering, and developing critical thinking, problem solving and team building skills. You can learn more about our presidents and department coordinators here!
