The Green Lobstahs
We are a group of engineering and business students from the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth and St. Bonaventure. We have teamed up to compete in this year’s Marine Energy Collegiate Competition; organized by the U.S. Department of Energy.
Our name is a play off the “Green Monster” of Fenway Park in Massachusetts where a majority of our team is from. The green also represents the clean energy produced by marine energy.
