Of High School Engineers and Hands-On Training

with No Comments

This weekend was an interesting week for everyone. A local high school came to visit us and we got a chance to show off the SC6 design. The top shell was relatively easy to bring out onto the rack but we wanted to clean up and remove most of the non-carbon-fiber components from the bottom shell before bringing it out. This gave the new mechies got a chance to really get hands on with the car. We quickly disassembled the roll cage and suspension as well as removing some restraining straps.

While the mechies clicked their ratchets, the electrical team also got a chance to work with SC6 hands-on. They inspected the wiring on the top shell to get a better picture of how their components will fit in the car.

The high-schoolers got a chance to see all of this in action and were impressed by SC6.

With Reading Week and Finals Week looming, the fall quarter is finally coming to a close. Both the mechie and electrical minions are ready for some more responsibility and winter quarter will surely see some very productive weekends.
