Mentors

BKamen

In Memory of Dr. Bart Kamen: Healer, Teacher, Mentor, Friend.

Dr. Bart Kamen was the founding “father” of our FRC team, The MidKnight Inventors. He supported, mentored, tutored, and encouraged us through disappointment and success. We are so fortunate to have had his leadership through the formative years of our team. He is dearly missed by mentors and students alike as we try to follow in his path.
