Meet Sarah (pictured in middle), our member of the week! When asked for a photo of herself to feature on social media, she said she “doesn’t really have a lot of pictures of just me”. (wish I was that social tbh). Sarah is a junior in AAE & works as Orbital’s Payload Design Lead 📐
So this just happened 😂 Meet Orby, our new mascot that we found during today’s meeting! After a while we decided to take him back outside but it made our meeting 100x better 🐭
