As every Padawan needs a Jedi master, the CAMS Robotics team would be nothing without our highly dedicated mentors. From professional engineers to machinists to people who simply enjoy building things, our mentors come from a plethora of backgrounds and use their experiences to teach by examples and instill in us technical and life skills that we will keep with us for the rest of our lives.
