MorTorq’s business subgroup is dedicated to forming and sustaining relationships with mentors, organizing volunteer opportunities in our community, and creating and distributing STEM outlets like our student-created media to the world! Our Business team focuses on writing the Business plan, the executive summary and the Chairman’s essay. We ensure that our students develop communication, presentation, and time-management skills as we strive to create a well-funded team that takes an active role in improving our community. We like to think of ourselves as the “glue” that keeps the team from falling apart, but also as the “grease” that lets the other parts of the team running like a well-oiled machine. We always look for new opportunities to further promote STEM and inspire others through the values of FIRST.
Here is last year’s Chairman’s Video, summing up the 2015-2016 season:
