Special thanks to Lockheed and Intel for making this event possible! Thank you to the 600+ attendees that packed Pauley Ballroom and came/stayed through the night to support the 100+ students that worked so hard to build their machine and to make this event happen. It was overall an extremely successful event that we hope to continue in the following years.
