Individual/Team Goals: To learn something new every time I’m in the shop, help other members learn and have fun, and make all of our cars functional and efficient.
Favorite Wisconsin Hybrid Project: I was project lead for the battery enclosure since we received the Mooventure. From planning, design, and now fabrication, that project has taught me a lot about the engineering process. I can’t wait to see it implemented in the car.
