This Week

We have competition this week! As a reminder, required hours are reduced to 5 hours for the week and the lab will be CLOSED Friday and Saturday. Thursday will likely close early, depending on when we finish loading the trailer for competition. 

As a reminder, we are in the build season hours requirements portion of the year. You are expected to track your hours and log 10 hours per week in the lab. You can find the hours that the lab is open at the bottom of these emails and check your hours at

ECU Competition

Our first competition is this weekend in ECU! Our load-in crew will be leaving from Bryan lobby at 2:30. You have already been notified if you are on the load-in crew. Everyone else attending, please be in Bryan lobby at 4:30, we are aiming to have the bus leaving by 4:45. 

Can't make it? That's ok! The event will be live streamed here

If you are an NCSSM student and would like a place to stay Sunday night, please email asap so we can find a local student to house you. 

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We are keeping close tabs on the Corona Virus spread. If you are sick, or feel like you are coming down with something PLEASE stay home! 

NCSSM and the entire UNC University system are continuing to monitor the status of the virus. Unless the school cancels trips or the events are canceled, we will be attending our in-state competitions (ECU, Asheville, District Champs). We will let you know as soon as we do if anything changes. 

So far, Houston Championships are still being held. Since we are not attending unless we qualify, we will wait until NC District Championships to make the call to attend vs not. If you don't feel comfortable with your child attending, that is ok! No competitions are required for the team. 

Build Season Meals

Hello Parents! Saturdays during build season are crazy days. The lab is usually open from noon until 9pm! That is a long time to go without food. We would love it if you would be willing to provide dinner on one of the Saturdays during build season. Our NCSSM students love getting a break from the dinning hall and our local students appreciate not having to leave the lab to go get dinner. 

Please fill out the spreadsheet here if you are willing to provide food. The attendance numbers are estimated based on previous years, over the next few weeks I will get a better feel for how many students we have on Saturdays this year. If you aren't local and wan't to help, that's great! Lots of places can do orders for delivery, or you can send money into the mentors that we will use to supply food. 

Some meals that have gone over well in previous years: Spaghetti, lasagna, taco bar, sandwiches, baked potatoes, and of course, pizza. Thank you in advance! Please remember to sign up so we know what to expect. If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask


As always, if you have any questions, please send an email to
