What we're all about

Team 4 ELEMENT was started in 2006 at High Tech Los Angeles. Team 4 strives to inspire, empower, and educate students, and as a result, students gain an array of diverse skills and experience. The 'ELEMENT' part of our name represents our core values: Engineering, Leadership, Entrepreneurship, Mentoring, Education, Networking, and Teamwork. We place a strong emphasis on the importance of these core values, community, communication, and collaboration. Students are excited to participate in our rigorous problem-solving projects and connect concepts from them to the real world. Our team is not departmentalized, so all students are exposed to multiple aspects of the team including: mechanics, electronics, design, programming, and business. By doing this, students learn and practice comprehensive team management skills including communication and collaboration.
