Skyler Fennell is a Sophomore Electrical Engineering Major and is a learning coach for the Space Vehicles LLC. Skyler became interested in the world of electronics back in middle school when he was introduced to amateur radio. Amateur radio (ham radio) is a licensed service and hobby where experimenters are allowed to build and test radio equipment, some which can even talk around the world. Through the hobby, he has met many engineers and enthusiasts where he exchanged ideas and learned electronic circuit concepts and practical projects. Skyler won the Amateur Radio Newsline Young Ham of the Year in 2016 and is excited to share his experience in the communications area for the balloon launch in Space Vehicles
Hello! My name is Mercedes Salazar and I'm a Geology/Earth science major weighing the possibility of minoring in physics. This is only my second semester at Tech but I have learned more abut my field of study and about myself than I could have ever hoped for. I was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico and decided to stay for college to be close to home. I love meeting new people and helping others and so the OSL was a great fit for me. I thoroughly enjoy hiking, biking and exploring (and occasionally getting lost!). This will be my second semester tutoring in the OSL but I look forward to helping out where I can.
