A Trip On The Sea, With E-Marine

Matt, Dylan and Jasen visited Paul Landino this sunday to see his work in progress Duffy boat.
It is a fully electric solar and wind power vessel and runs on a 46 volt drive system. It has a maglev horizontal wind generator and 12 solar panels. Paul took the boat down the Fort Lauderdale new river at a good cruise of 3 knots. It was a great time and we got to talk to Paul about Matt and Dylan's solar pontoon senior project, as well about the upcoming 2015 Solar Car Challenge.

A Visit From Tesla Motors

This Wednesday Zachary Jackson from Tesla Motors of Dania Beach stopped by the tech room to see what we are all about. We showed him SK3 and the rest of what goes on in engineering.
We discussed about future events and outside he brought his personal P85 Tesla Model S.
We had a great time and were even able to 3D print a Tesla logo for him to take home.
Thank you Zach for coming to South Plantation High School Engineering!

Dignitary Event!

This Friday, school board dignitaries visited our school to come see our  environmental magnet program. While they were here, Matt and Sydney attended a luncheon with them and the rest of the crew prepped the Solar Car and Go-Kart. When the dignitaries walked out of there meeting, we ran both of the cars around the magnet loop. It was a success and everybody loved the car. All in all, it was a successful day with the dignitaries.
