We have liftoff! Due to student outreach (by Curtis Wang) and a follow up meeting, we have secured a student /faculty group from Harvey Mudd College as our mentors. We also have the support of engineers from Raytheon.
This leaves us w/ the money matters. If you or anyone you know would like to sponsor us, please use the attached sponsorship letter. If you have any suggestions on groups I should make personal contacts with, please E-mail me. The kit and entrance fee alone is $6,000. We are targeting a total of $12,000 to cover additional parts, tools, travel and other expenses.
