Our local mission is much the same as the national mission. Although this is a competition, we hold the spirit of knowledge to be our number one priority. We aim to see students of all backgrounds throughout New England gaining appreciation for their infrastructure and those who make it possible. We also want the students to understand the design process and work in teams in a similar way to engineering professionals. We want the students to broaden their perspectives on the way the world works and the ways they may want to contribute to it in the future. Lastly, it is our mission to bring each and every student participating (and their school faculty, parents, mentors, and all involved) a positive learning experience full of fun, teamwork and creativity.

After you drop off the model, follow to the end of Leon, take a left onto Ruggles and turn left onto Columbus Ave. You can park in the Renaissance Garage -- see map.

If you cannot make that date, still get the file in-- don't let the virtual city submission bring your team down!
