Students learn team-building skills, gain self-confidence, and create solutions for the challenges that are facing today’s scientists! Our Intermediate Engineers have the opportunity to train off-season so when they turn 10 years old by Sept. 1, 2022 they will be eligible to join a GSC team. This class does not guarantee a spot on a team in the fall but is a great way to build toward team participation.
