Each year, Dartmouth’s Formula Hybrid Competition offers “an opportunity for students to gain hands-on experience innovating across electrical, mechanical, and computer engineering disciplines.” This year was no exception.
“I think it’s the fastest and the funnest laboratory that engineering students could have at their disposal,” said Jerry Gappens, General Manager of the New Hampshire Motor Speedway where the competition is held each year in early May.
“I’ve never been to a NASCAR track,” said Dartmouth Formula Racing team captain Darren Reis ’13, “and so the size and the scale and being on the infield is pretty special.”
Final results in the hybrid category are:
Lawrence Technological University
…and for electric only:
University of Vermont
University of Massachusetts-Lowell
But in terms of educational value, everyone’s a winner.
