We were the only high school in this University competition, and the only Team to actually build a car. We designed and built a three-wheeled, bamboo sheathed electric vehicle that could serve both the developing and developed world.
Students designed infrastructure to support the vehicle and an environmental and market rationale for the car. In the process, students learned to design car parts on CAD, solar charging stations on Google Sketch-up. They also learned how to lay-up bamboo "fiberglass" and how to weld. We all learned a tremendous amount about the history of the Model T and transportation around the world.
