Greetings from Adelaide, South Australia, where the team will call home while we prepare for next month’s Global Green Challenge. Last week, our team left Michigan for the 10,000 mile journey to Australia. After some time spent overcoming jet-lag and moving our equipment through international customs, we have settled in to our workspace-away-from-home at Prince Alfred College (PAC) in Adelaide. We are grateful once again this year for the support of PAC, which has provided us the facilities in which we can work as a team. It is great to be reunited with all of our friends and supporters in Adelaide, and we are surely looking forward to the rest of our stay here.
Our arrival in Adelaide reminds us of how far we have come, and we must thank all of those who have allowed us to achieve so much. The efforts of all of our team members, advisors, faculty members, sponsors, friends, families, and other supporters have all been instrumental in the creation of Infinium.
We would like to especially thank two of our Platinum Sponsors for making our travels during the past week possible: Delta Air Lines, for supporting our air travel to Australia through their new Los Angeles to Sydney flight, and Ford of Australia, for providing us with four vehicles to transport team members and equipment during the race. Stay tuned to hear more about our adventures from the past week!
