Thomas Sweeney

Thomas isn't just the captain of the Solar Car Team...he has helped to spearhead the BLINK program!

Thomas has expanded the reach of the solar car team to participate in a community-based outreach initiative called BLINK, an Arduino-based coding program. Taking  precious time away from his studies and  technical work on the solar car,  Thomas has trained student volunteers in the craft of Arduino coding, and was the chief instructor, preparing all of the lessons for classes at Dr. Davey Elementary school in Hamilton. Thomas's work is an excellent example of student's giving back through community engagement! 

"Hands on learning is way more engaging than
class, so that's what I prioritized."
