Planning Committee 

Our first TechQuinox Planning Committee held a meeting on Feb. 10th and we are headlong into the development and implementation process for our activities (see photos). Student volunteers are leading teams for each of the planned activities under the guidance of faculty and alumni mentors. We are still in need of additional alumni mentors. If interested, please contact us at for more information on how to join our committee to work with students, faculty, and other alumni in developing, testing, and presenting our activities over the next few months and on the day of the event. Our next Committee meeting will be in March but please reach out before then if interested.
