For the past two weeks, the team has been exhibiting Quantum at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. We’ve had a lot of fun educating the public about solar racing and solar technology (plus seeing all of the newest motor cars!), but all good things must come to an end. The show closed Sunday night, and Quantum was quickly brought back to the Wilson Center so that preparations could begin for the 2012 American Solar Challenge.
We’d like to thank everyone who stopped by our exhibit, including alumni, sponsors, and curious onlookers of all ages. We’d especially like to thank Vanessa Bishop-Diggs at the Michigan Econonic Development Corporation, Gary Novak and the team at Omnitec Solutions, Jen Wegner from the University of Michigan College of Engineering, Carol Hagen and the Garage Services staff at the U-M Parking and Transportation Services, Lauren Arnold from the Fulkerson Group, and Marilyn Doebler, Kathy Neumann, and Mary Wondero from the Detroit Auto Dealers Association. We couldn’t have made this possible without all of their support.
