Hello Awesome SRE Family and Friends!
Our crowdfunding campaign has now come to an end. In approximately five weeks, our team has raised a total of $2,710!! While that is not the goal of $5,000 established at the start, that is still 54% of the money we had hoped to raise! With this money, we can still get some necessary supplies and sponsors thanks to people who shared the campaign.
For the last week, a lot of effort went in to get the brackets welded onto the frame. The aerodynamic team completed coating tests on the body molds. The power train team picked up the last of the battery frames, and battery testing is progressing with minor deficiencies which have been noted and resolved. The team is going to be assembling the modules holding hundreds of cells and collector plates. Overall, the team has come together to get a lot done in terms of manufacturing as competition quickly approaches.
The team would like to thank each person who has helped in raising the money needed for the car. This includes not only the donors, but the friends and family who spread our cause to others so that we could raise competition funds and our hopes. Without the money raised, getting to competition would be a longer journey and far more difficult. So once again, thank you to those who have helped our club in every way possible.
