Who We Are
The Wazzu Everett Engineering Club is a student-run organization focused on putting engineering knowledge into practice and developing experience through hands-on projects. The club includes three sub-teams:
- Mars Rover Team
- Rocket Team
- Wind Energy Team
While each sub-team has a faculty advisor, students are ultimately responsible for everything from the design process, project construction, securing funds, choosing and applying for competitions, purchasing materials, and booking hotels/flights/rental cars, among other things. The experience students gain from participating in these teams not only improves engineering skills, it also demands student ownership of the entire engineering process. This is the kind of experience that results in the highest caliber of preparedness for a career in all engineering disciplines.
What we do
This year, each of our subteams are competing in national competitions. The Rocket Team has been selected to compete in the NASA University Student Launch Initiative, the Mars Rover Team is competing in the University Rover Challenge, and the Wind Energy Team is competing in the Collegiate Wind Competition. Each team is designing and building a competition rocket, Mars rover, and wind energy turbine, with many other specific sub-tasks and challenges that are built into each competition.
Why We Need Your Help
Our Engineering Club has a very detailed budget for each subteam, which accounts for materials, components, tools, and necessary license/certification fees. The biggest expense our subteams need help covering is travel expenses. After putting in hundreds of cumulative hours towards each project, it would be a shame for only a select few team members to be able to go to the competitions. Each competition is in a different state, and flights and hotels add up quickly, even when staying at the cheapest places possible. Please help us reach our modest fundraising goals so that we can bring every team member to competition that has put in a serious amount of work this academic year.
The students in our club are part of the next generation of engineers who will advance our world's technology and industry. Supporting us is supporting the future of our world!
