The Formula SAE Team from Missouri S&T started this racing season ranked No. 9 in the world, and S&T’s 2009 performances have bolstered that standing. Here are some of last spring’s highlights from various student design teams on campus.

Formula SAE Team

  • First place: Virginia International Raceway
  • Fourth place: Michigan International Speedway

Human-Powered Vehicle Team

  • Second place: East Coast Challenge
  • Third place: West Coast Challenge

Advanced Aero Vehicle Group

  • Top team in U.S.: SAE competition in Georgia

Elsewhere, the women’s mucking team went to Butte, Mont., and once again brought home a world championship. (This is not officially a design team, but still, a world championship.) Meanwhile, the Solar House Team is putting the final touches on a new house that will be shipped to Washington, D.C., in October for the 2009 Solar Decathlon competition.

More information on all of the design teams is available at http://experiencethis.mst.edu.
