We're young and dedicated. We photograph well. Carlos and Gabriel attended Bell High School many years ago. They became re-acquainted at East Los Angeles College where they both chose to pursue a degree in engineering. While at ELAC they met Manny, Alfonso, and Alex, also engineering students at ELAC. The five attended many classes together and served as Math and Engineering tutors at the campus. The five have forged friendships that have been tested through the rigors of their academic endeavors. The five will continue their educations at USC, Cal State LA, and Cal Poly Pomona in the fall.
Team Note: Due to unforeseen circumstances Alex Ponce will no longer be with the Red Rock Rovers. In his place will be Adan Garcia. The younger brother of team captain Carlos Garcia and one of the Red Rock Rovers most helpful assistants.
1.The inspiration for our team and craft are the men and women that make space exploration and Mars rover Curiosity possible. The concept behind our craft is simple. It's a man made rocket plane that is the perfect fusion of strength and weight to pierce through the Mars atmosphere. We'd tell you more but our craft is "TOP SECRET" Don't think so? Check out the craft design again...Apology accepted!
2.Team Captain Carlos Garcia once applied to the Red Bull Flugtag and was denied. Some say he has a chip on his shoulder.
3. Some of the team members are afraid of heights, others are afraid of water, we're all afraid of sharks, a true recipe for success.
