Material Rolling In

With all our material beginning to flow in for machining we’ve needed to pull out the big guns to handle it all. Thank you to Alcoa for all the aluminum!

Society of Women Engineers’ High School Day

As part of their annual high school day, the Society of Women Engineers (SWE) brings dozens of local HS students to CMU to introduce them to science and technology related fields. This year, CMR was invited to participate to help demonstrate real-world engineering, and we were happy to participate!

The students were very energetic about the project and really enjoyed touring our Garage and experiencing engineering first hand We hope these future college students will look to engineering in their career path.

We are Registered!

Lincoln and Loudon here we come!

For the past several weeks CMR has continued pounding away at our design and verifying that all rules are being accounted for.

With our fingers on the refresh button, this week CMR officially registered for Competition in both Loudon, New Hampshire in April, and Lincoln, Nebraska in June. Our numbers are:

Lincoln: E225

NH: 16

Although many months away, we are already looking forward to racing our new electric vehicle!
