This year, the students in Materials Science and Engineering reached 100% participation in a fundraising campaign, and so I agreed to carry a bunch of them on the back of the cargobike (a much safer stunt than last year). Originally this was to take place on King’s College Circle, but with all the students burning the midnight oil to get their final assignments done, we decided on some quick trips up and down the hallways of our building.
There were some wobbles at the beginning since a) the typical student was heavier than either of my daughters, and b) they wanted to stand and or hang off the extreme back end of the bike. Eventually, we got things under control.
All in good fun.
With the end of regular classes and as we head into exams, the HPVDT is hoping for better attendance as they continue to work on the ASME bike with a little less than five weeks to go until HPVC East.The team is working on the various internal components, and running some tests at the same time. Here are some wheels being built.
and here is a seatbelt harness buckle that was tested to destruction.
