"5 high school students promoting innovation and funding Engineering Programs in our area"
Gowdham Murugan, Jovan Bartlett, Luke Vellutini, Faris Waheed, and Ariv Tandon. The 5 high school students that met through Rocklin High School as freshmen, Gowdham and Jovan taking all of the engineering classes offered and joining the robotics team.
The notably professional RHS Engineering Shop has a variety of tools, machines, and supplies. Being estimated at 1.5 million dollars, it meant the team truly had the opportunity to create anything. Specifically, experienced machinist, Gowdham Murugan, loved the Vertical CNC Mills. These large machines can cut metal extremely precisely, based off of programs Gowdham writes on the software, Fusion 360. However the team quickly realized how expensive it is to keep the engineering program running, getting little funding and with tools always breaking left and right.
To solve this problem, the team sought to selling their products and custom inventions to where they can step up and help fund the RHS Engineering Program to keep it alive! They also say that they hope to one day be able to support other engineering programs in their area!
