The whole University of Missouri system has recently become very focused on becoming "Green," especially here at Missouri S&T. The E3 program is the result of this. We of course are happy to see the name recycled from our second car, E-Cubed, that raced in 1995. It was our last attempt at a composite chassis, and was destroyed unceremoniously after its competition. As our heaviest car, we decided to never use that much epoxy again. Consequently Solar Miner weighed half as much.
As part of this, we will be attending the Energy Summit at Mizzou on April 22nd and 23rd. More information about that can be found here.
P.S. I like our logo better.
