"Participating in the Challenge gave me a taste of what it’s like to develop new technologies and the opportunity to work with amazing students and mentors. It also taught me the importance of diversifying my skill set so I can better assist my colleagues and be prepared to tackle a variety of problems in the future. Most important, I learned that something my friends and I made has the potential to change someone’s life."
