Another big step towards getting the Mooventure moving occurred this week, the battery enclosure was picked up from our friends at Engineered Metal Products. This aluminum case will house the battery in the trunk of the Mooventure. We would like to thank EMP for doing such a great job on this crucial part and for their continued support of our team.
We had a blast talking to people about what we do at The Wisconsin Corn and Soy Expo in the Wisconsin Dells last week. We shared our booth with the other Wisconsin SAE teams including @wisconsinracing whose car was on display! A big thank you to The Wisconsin Corn Promotion Board and The United Wisconsin Grain Producers for supporting our team.
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.
