Mondays and Wednesdays!
We look forward to continuing a season of designing, building, and racing a Hydrogen Fuel Cell vehicle!

Mentors have also been instrumental in the building of this vehicle. Click here to view a list of past mentors.
Without their support, this project would not have been possible. The Student Engineering Club would like to
thank all past and current mentors for all their help and hard work.
