Team Leaders

Unlike other FIRST teams, Saline Singularity is run primarily by students. We have mentors that keep us on track, but our members drive the team. To maintain this structure, our team is split into five divisions: Mechanical, CAD, Electrical, Programming, and Business. Each of these divisions has its own lead student to coordinate and teach members of each division. Leads also gather alongside mentors to make larger team decisions.
