Now that we’re at the beginning of another design cycle, we would like to give all our sponsors a big thanks to show them our appreciation. We wouldn’t be able to compete in solar car races if it wasn’t for the time, material, and donations given to us by our sponsors. These companies are kind enough to help out with molds, composite materials, PCBs, electronic equipment, batteries, and software – to name only a few things. On top of that they are truly interested in our team, and offer advice and encouragement whenever they can. Our sponsors are all great companies that excel at what they do, and are generous enough to help student teams like us build something as interesting and exciting as a solar-powered car. Check them out below!
Now that things have settled down a bit and Chopper is back in Boston, we would like to thank Genasun and EMA Services for all the invaluable help they gave us in constructing our battery pack.
First, a huge thanks to Genasun! Alex MeVay and Alexander Hayman of Genasun ( also alums of the team) designed our pack and battery protection system. They were also kind enough to offer us a place to construct the pack as well, and we spent several long days putting together all the batteries, PCBs, and wire cabling. Check out some pictures from the assembly party below!
And of course, another huge thanks to EMA Services. who assembled our BMS boards free of charge. Thanks for helping us out, even during your vacation time!
