Travis Burns

My name is Travis Burns and I am an Electrical Engineering major currently attending California State University Bakersfield. I volunteer at my church with the youth groups in my spare time. Last year I worked with NASA through the National Community College Aerospace Scholars program for an unmanned mission to Mars project. I enjoy engineering because it lends me to solving complex problems, something that I find both rewarding and challenging.





Trinidad Monsibais

I am currently a sophomore at Bakersfield Community College and have been raised in Bakersfield practically my whole life. I am a musician at heart and have found a way to incorporate my passion with my major by fabricating and repairing electrical guitars while studying to become an electrical engineer. I have worked in the electrical engineering field as an electrical designer, designing electrical panels to automate waste water and water treatment facilities for roughly 4 to 5 years and have always been welcome to a tough challenge. I enjoy physics and the practical application of math in real world situations and this competition should be a great example of the type of motivating challenge I truly enjoy.





Mark Ralls

My name is Mark Ralls, and I am from Bakersfield, CA. I am currently enrolled at Bakersfield College with my major in mechanical engineering. I have always had a love for all things electrical and mechanical. And I seem to have to always fix things, make things simpler, easier to use, and faster to enact. It is these traits that lead me to want to become an engineer.





Stephen Wight

I am a Mathematics major at Bakersfield College looking to transfer to a UC school. I relax by playing video games, reading, watching informative YouTube videos, or hanging out with friends. I think technology is vital to the success of every level of society and people's lives improve as our knowledge of the world increases. I hope to help contribute to that knowledge base in a useful way, since it seems to be the quickest way to help people.
