Kavin Vignesh, Soha Kazi and Iris Wong, in Year 9, have spent several months this year working on an electric vehicle, ‘Woody’. The students attended two workshops (CAD, Arduino Programming) at the University of Auckland and successfully implemented an electronic dashboard with a SmartPhone into the electric vehicle.
Following on from earlier successes, they entered the ‘Make Your Marque CAD Competition’ run by EVolocity and came third in October. Well done!
Dr Stephen Kavermann, Mechanical Engineering Lecturer at the University of Auckland, judged entries. He was highly impressed with the standard of their entry. He had this feedback:
Very elegant design, simple but effective, good job! Good use of Fusion 360, but next time try some more “3D” tools. Lacking a mounting feature to attach to vehicle.
In recognition of their hard work and talent, the team won a $200 Prezzie Voucher.
Congratulations on this impressive achievement.
