Highlights Of What We Accomplished Since The Last Update
Three of our alumni team members who graduated last year, have volunteered to serve as interns for the Solar Car Challenge organization this coming July for our competition at Texas Motor Speedway.
Set up of our new shop has really taken shape. I want to extend a special thanks to Morgan Caraway & Evan Rush (alumni from last year’s team), who came by the shop during their Christmas break home from college to lend a major hand to make this happen.
The CAD training has been going extremely well and Mrs. Davis tells me that she has been really impressed with our students and how quickly that have been learning the material. I really appreciate Mrs. Davis and her son Ben (freshman engineering student at UT) for this special training that she has made available to them.
