Stanford Solar Car Team Finishes 6th at World Solar Challenge

The Stanford Solar Car Project (SSCP) team completed the Bridgestone World Solar Challenge in 41 hours 23 minutes, finishing in sixth place out of a field of 29 teams. The Stanford team was one of only seven teams to complete the 3000 kilometer (about 1900 miles) race in five days. In the official SSCP race recap team member, Alex Lubkin, summed up the teams feelings saying,

The two years of preparation, design, manufacturing, and testing came full circle as we crossed the finish line in Adelaide. Thank you to our team members, sponsors, family, and friends who supported us from the start.

Did You Know? It’s MFG DAY!

Today marks the annual celebration of Manufacturer Day (MFG DAY). MFG DAY is meant to educate the next generation about modern manufacturing while dispelling common misconceptions.  To accomplish this, manufacturers are encouraged to organize events that give people a behind the scenes look of manufacturing processes.  MFG DAY 2015 features over 2300 events including facility tours of manufactures such as ABB, Boeing, Jabil, and General Atomics.
