Chauncey Lau Co Founder & Engineering Director Chauncey was first introduced to the world of electronics at a very young age, as his father would constantly be tinkering or working on a project at home. The lights and wires always fascinated him, and led him to aspire to be an engineer. His first formal introduction into electrical engineering came as a 6th grader, when he was lucky enough to work with NASA engineers. Through that experience, Chauncey was able to grow his skill set, and watch his passion for the field grow. Chauncey is also the President for a robotics team. When he’s not tinkering with a circuit or setting his hair on fire, you can find Chauncey running, watching dramas, or pursuing his passion for origami.
