What a weekend!
Thank you to everyone who participated, watched, volunteered, or otherwise took part in The Tech Challenge 2016: Taking Flight. It was a spectacular weekend where The Tech’s mission — inspiring the innovator in everyone — took center stage.
We want to give a special thank you to our presenting sponsor, EMC Corporation, whose support enables us to engage more than 2,000 students — a record! — in months of learning about the engineering design process, teamwork, perseverance and more.
