The University of New Haven chapter of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers is hosting a car show October 10 on their North Campus. The role of the ASME on campus is to educate engineering students by providing them with hands-on projects, tours of engineering facilities, relevant charitable works, and connections for internships and employment.
-Date: Sunday, October, 10 2010
-Cost: $10 per car, $8 per car with UNH ID, $1 for spectators.
-Show will be judged with awards and prizes.
-Food and drink will be available.
-Location: University of New Haven (in West Haven, CT) North Campus
-All makes, models, and years welcome.
-Proceeds support the ASME’s main hands-on project, the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Supermileage Vehicle. The goal of this competition is to design, build, and race a vehicle that achieves the highest fuel economy possible, within a stringent set of rules. Our 5 year plan, already underway, has a goal of 1500+ MPG. The vehicle, which is undergoing an overhaul and upgrade from last year’s completion, will be on display at the show.
-This is a laid back, friendly event, which we hope to turn into a yearly tradition.
Come out and enjoy one of the final shows before the weather gets cold!
