Steve Dunbar
⯌ Mentor ⯌

Steve began mentoring for Alarm Robotics and re-creating the FRC playing field obstacles when his son Brian joined the team as a freshman in 2016 as an 8th grader.  He took on the official 4H Team Co-leader role in 2018 and is continuously busy with annual team member registrations, seeking and following up on corporate sponsorships, and paying the bills (including the rent on our lab, the historic red brick schoolhouse!).  Steve has a BS and MS in Engineering, holds a Professional Engineering License in MA and Project Management Professional Certification.  He is a 30-year employee of the US Army Corps of Engineers and completed 3 years in the private sector managing software development. 4H Alarm Robotics has been a rewarding experience for him and for his son Brian, and Steve enjoys seeing that same experience unfold for new members, returning members, and mentors.
