In addition to its 3rd place overall win, the UW team scored highly in several subcategories: 1st in endurance, 2nd in engineering design and 3rd in business presentation, and was the runner-up for the Cummins Innovative Design Award.
While the team has achieved great success with combustion vehicles at competitions in previous years, this was the first year it focused solely on electric. Great work – Go Dawgs!

Despite its name, black carbon — the dark component of smoke — is largely invisible in global climate change models. The lack of standardized measurement tools, in addition to black carbon’s numerous sources, have made it hard for scientists to measure black carbon emissions and their impact on the environment. Through the pioneering analysis of ME alumna Tami Bond, black carbon has been identified as one of the most significant contributors to manmade climate change — second only to carbon dioxide.
