Background

An email to the directors list contained the following text:

My name is Sam. I breed algae, make robots that make coffee, hack, generate hydrogen using sunlight, create biodegradable plastics (then do spectroscopy on that plastic to observe its oxidation thus calculating rate of decay).

The one detail that I must bring up is my age, I am 17. I am aware that the age requirement to join is 18. I would like to make a plea to the directors to allow me to join regardless.

Talk it over with the group and get back to me at this address.

Thank you all for your time.

The best, Sam S.
