The Future of Vehicle Design

What better way to wrap up the spring semester than to see what the next generation of automotive engineers are up to right now? Square One Education Network has an annual Innovative Vehicle Design event to coax high school students to seek out higher education in the engineering world. We loaded up our AntiPrius hybrid trainer vehicle and hit the road to attend the event at Michigan International Speedway and were amazed at what we saw. Students designed, built and tested their electric vehicles and brought them all together in one place to see who could "go the distance". Students competed in a variety of classes including full scale, autonomous, mini, and even underwater vehicles! Here a few shots from the event:

To see more pictures from the event, there is an album set up here.
