Saturday Work-Session: A Team that Eats Together Succeeds Together

The EcoCar team met again last Saturday to continue working on Alice. With the deadline for car completion just around the corner, our members our working hard, day and night (quite literally). After a hectic morning, we decided to take a break for a few minutes, eat some lunch and bond.

Aeroshell Mold Pickup

We picked up the Aeroshell mold for our new car Alice! A few of us drove down to Calgary to get it early in the morning.

The Aeroshell forms the outer body of the car. It serves to make the car aerodynamic while simultaneously making it look pretty. We’re all about multitasking here at EcoCar 🙂 The next step is to sand this baby down and then use it to make the final Aeroshell.

Chassis Update: Black Magic

Hello again everyone! Things have been busy as usual at EcoCar. The Mec E’s have been hard at work building Alice‘s chassis: the “skeleton” of the car. Apart from holding the suspension, aeroshell, electrical boards, and hydrogen fuel cell together, the chassis plays a critical role in the overall stability and structure of the car. Needless to say, this is one of the car’s most important components.
