Electrathon Team Prepares For Competition

Mr. Schmitz's Mechanical Systems class is busy creating a car for an Electrathon competition that will take place at the end of the year. Electrathon is an international electric vehicle competition for high school and college students. Cashton participates in competitions hosted by the Wisconsin Energy Efficient Vehicle Association. Electrathon challenges students to engineer a car from concept to completion, and it demonstrates the viability of electric vehicles. Students design and build an efficient vehicle in a hands-on and team oriented environment.  The Cashton team includes:  Nathan Schmitz, Andrew Mlsna, Alex Crick, Caleb Fernholz, Dominic Flock, Jacob Peterson, Troy Muenzenberger, Brody Hackbarth, Tanner Von Ruden, and Tim Geier.

The team is designing a wood mock up of the newly designed frame.

There are strict weight and size requirements for the car.
Team members weigh each component to assure their design will meet contest restriction.
