Faculty advisor Sarah Leadbeater noted how proud she was of the students who tackled a very difficult challenge, worked really hard and put in a lot of long hours. “More importantly”, Sarah stated, “this is their success, I could guide them and track down support for technical issues but by the time we were a month or two into this project their knowledge so surpassed mine they were the experts and they were teaching me.”
