Team Leaders

The Team:

The founder of Saline Singularity is Rahul Chamarthi. Chamarthi was a senior at Saline High School in 2013 when the team was created. That year, the team made it all the way to semifinals. Slowly the team kept gaining people, all the way into this year. Our team now has about 30 people. Though our team is fairly new, we are a bit different from other teams; our team is run primarily by students. We have many mentors that keep us on track, but we drive the team.
