A Huge Thank You!

November 02, 2021

We hit our $5,000 goal on the very first day and our team is blown away by your support! We are so grateful to everyone who donated as your gift will make a valuable impact on our project. We are not only on track to fund our members in traveling to our annual competition in Salt Lake City, but we are also making progress towards advancing our tower's structural analysis by updating our shake table mechanism and buying high-level software! We just increased our goal to $10,000 to continue this amazing progress and we hope you continue to share and help our project along this journey!
