Big THANK YOU to the kind and talented people at Mark It (formally AUDS N ENDS), located in Mount Horeb, WI, for their work on the team’s new apparel! We are very happy with the final products, so if you are looking for custom embroidery, screen printing, and/or promotional items for any occasion, make sure to contact Mark It.
We tore the engine, exhaust, and more out of the Mooventure. This is the start of transitioning this 2009 Ford Escape into a fully electric SUV! Next step is to dismantle the engine so our members can get their hands dirty and learn a thing or two about engines!
We had a great time speaking with the next generation of Badger engineering at the 2016 Engineering Bash. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and saw the Mooventure! We’re looking forward to another great year of progress transforming our Ford Escape into a fully electric vehicle!
Barry and Sarah got the opportunity to meet Ford CEO Mark Fields during their summer internships at Ford Motor Company. Mark spoke to all the interns about the company and shared some of his tips on being successful.
The Mover and Shaker Award was presented on November 13 to Roumen Guha. Roumen is a second year member of the Controls and Electrical sub-team, and received the award for his ongoing efforts to on the hybrid demo box and for his working to determine the potential of reusing Mooventure hardware. Congratulations and thank you Mr. Guha for all your hard work!
The Mover and Shaker Award is given out to team members who have demonstrated extra ambition and dedication to the team success and future progress.
The first award of the 2015-16 school year goes to Dmitrii Turygin! Dmitrii is a new member of the hybrid team this year. He has been incredibly committed to the team, attending all team outreach events. He has been particularly dedicated in his work outside of regular meeting hours, spending an entire weekend in the shop to help pull the Moovada engine for a clutch repair and helping extensively getting the eMoove ready for an upcoming test drive. Congratulations and thanks for all of your hard work Mr. Turygin! We look forward to seeing what you will do from here!
