As the Solar Car Club starts rolling into the ideation and designing process each of the different teams sat down and started brainstorming what needed to be done to ensure that everything can run smoothly for the next couple of months. The mechanical team split up into 2 sub-teams, the interior design and exterior design (which I am a part of). We decided to create a flowchart of our planning and modeling process, and from there we distributed a number of man hours to each section of the chart according to how long we predicted each section would take. After that we accumulated a list of skills that each member would need to acquire before we began the building process. I'm very excited to dive into the designing process and eventually the building process. As a new member of the Solar Car Club, I am very excited to learn from and alongside those who were on the team last year.
