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!
