Professional Scientific Support:
We made contact with one of our professional consultants Mr. Nicholas Fera (a research technician at Henry M. Jackson Foundation) through our teacher (Mr. Naatus) who used his alumni network at the University of California (in Santa Barbara) to find people who have a background in science who would be willing to mentor/consult/support on our STEM team. We then reached out to him regarding our project.
