The event’s success also depends on the generous support of community sponsors. We are grateful to our nine sponsors—GE Healthcare, Johnson Controls, LEONARDO DRS, Sage Water, We Energies Foundation, Dedicated Computing, Eaton, Generac Power Systems and GRAEF—whose backing this year enabled the expansion of prize money for our students and for the competition to expand to the UWM Student Union.
