      • The last regularly scheduled CAD training class is scheduled for Saturday, February 1st

      • Preparation of the team’s required CAD drawings to support the March 1st Solar Car Challenge registration filing will be the next focus.


    • Solar Car Workshop

      • Brian Rush, Shannon Caraway, and Morgan Caraway attended the workshop held at the DFW Marriott and heard a really good presentation on telemetry that was provided by the team captain’s from last year’s Okemos, Michigan team who had won the telemetry award in 2019.

      • We picked up several good ideas for the telemetry system that we are trying to design for our cars this year (see photos below).

  • Sunday, January 12th

    • Team workday at the solar car shop - Jake, Zach, and Ryder met with Shannon and Brian and continued construction on the new car.

    • We were able to develop a template for the new car’s upper instrument panel / front bulk head support structure, cut it out of aluminum, press brake it into the correct shape, and rivet it into place.

    • The overall fit and finish was impeccable!  Great job team!
