A gathering of Miners: past, present and future

On April 25, a reception for alumni and prospective students highlighted the Human-Powered Vehicle design team at the law offices of Van Pelt, Yi & James in Cupertino, Calif. Alumni host Lee Van Pelt, Phys’86, Chris Ramsay, MetE’83, MS MetE’85, director of the Student Design and Experiential Learning Center, and Sarah Moore, admissions representative, brought past, present and future Miners together for pizza, conversation and a team presentation. Twelve team members traveled to the area for the Human-Powered Vehicle Challenge West Competition, sponsored by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers’ Santa Clara Valley Section. The Missouri S&T team placed third overall in the competition, which was held at the Hellyer Velodrome and the San Jose Fairgrounds.
