Meet the team

Background:

Mecha Mules is a completely student-led team that believes students thrive the most when they are given the freedom to try things out for themselves and find what works best for them individually.

Each member has the choice to focus their attention on specific portions of the team’s projects or to work a little on everything.  All the work done for competitions this year from building, programming, and driving to designing the team logo, fundraising for & designing our team T-shirts, business proposals, creating a Mecha Mules social media presence, and even making this website, all have been completely carried out by students.

Mecha Mules has an elected group of student leaders that are given the responsibility of overseeing different sections of the team’s work, and our current Mecha Mules Club President is Arwynn Haney.
