ASEE Battery-Powered Car Team

TCC Engineering Club
1999 ASEE Battery-Powered Car Team

We won!  On June 21, 1999, TCC Engineering students competed against other two-year engineering programs in a national design competition sponsored by the American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE).  The competition was held in Charlotte, NC at the Charlotte Convention Center as a part of ASEE's Annual Convention.  The goal of the competition was to build a battery-powered car that could follow a 3/4" strip of black electrical tape three times around an 8' x 12' plywood track with the ends of the track sloping downward.  TCC's entry finished with a winning time of 2 minutes, 34 seconds.
