Our club hopes to promote the preparation and consumption of bacon and bacon like products such as guanciale, prosciutto, or pancetta.

BBQ Club

A club for those who wish to learn more about the art of southern barbecue cooking. Every other week we decide on a recipe and then execute it using our very own smoker, often mixing in family traditions from several club members. Time commitment is low, but reward is high. Usually newcomers with no barbecue experience are already contributing new ideas by their 3rd meeting, helping in our ongoing effort to improve our recipes and produce the best smoked meats we can. Consider stopping by or emailing the club president since you will likely never again have the opportunity to get free lessons on how to produce delicious barbecued meats.

For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology (FIRST) Mentors

It’s as close to “real-world engineering” as a student can get. Volunteer professional mentors lend their time and talents to guide each team.” This club seeks to fulfill the last clause of this statement, and volunteer our “time and talent” to help local high school FIRST teams. We seek to teach students valuable skills in the field of engineering and robot design, but with a long term goal of inspiring these students to love science and technology.
