After spending weeks on autodesk inventor and having countless meetings on designing the most efficeint car possible, our team's Cad Model was finally completed. With the October 25th deadline coming up, sending our car design in to Shell seemed an impossible task. Although by putting time in outside of class to finish, our team was able to finish the "Brocket" Cad design a day early! Phase I is complete and now we must wait to see if all requirements were met in our design, which we are expecting to hear on November 15th. Full speed ahead the Blue Devil Racing team is continuing to make improvements and is working towards a hard earned trip to Houston for the Shell-Eco Marathon in the spring!

We are back! With a new group of seniors that are ready for the final stage of Project Lead The Way (PLTW). We are exited to announce that we have entered into the Shell Eco Marathon which is a worldwide challenge that allows teams from both colleges and high schools to design and build energy efficinet vehicles. Most car competitions race for speed but this competition is all about the amount of energy that your team's car uses. The marathon takes place in Houston, Texas April 24th through the 27th! There are two catagories that teams can enter into and we held a team vote and decided to enter into the prototype division using internal combustion. This was a difficult decision for our team because in the past years Brockport has used battery electric instead of internal combustion. So our team has been doing tons of research in order to learn how internal combustion works compared to battery electric! We are moving in the right direction and we are focusing a lot on the many decisions that are coming our way. Wish us luck!

Unfortunately, National Geographic has been forced to cancel both the university and high school contests because of technical issues with the voting platform that compromised the voting process beyond repair. All participating schools will be awarded a grant of $350 in recognition of their teams' efforts. Thank you for your support!
