Jerrie Fiala, a faculty member in the Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering department, recently posted the PDF of a CEAS e-Newsletter discussing this year’s WMU Sunseeker team. If you do not know what Sunseeker is, it is the College of Engineering’s solar car racing team that designs, builds and then races its solar car in the North American Solar Challenge (NASC) each year. This year, they were eliminated from the Challenge due to a solar panel array being damaged due to wind conditions. But they demonstrated tremendous sportsmanship and committment to engineering and to their project by continuing to show their vehicle at each stop of the race, and assisting other teams.
