Advanced Engineering Design Class Takes Second Place in Ten80 Competition

On October 24, The Browning School's Form VI Advanced Engineering Design class traveled to Massachusetts to compete in the Ten80 New England Green Flag Invitational, part of an initiative that challenges middle and high school students in and out of schools to optimize the performance of 1:10 scale radio controlled cars. Director of Academic Technology Jeremy Sambuca reports: The all-day event was held at the North American headquarters of Dassault Systemes in Waltham, Mass. Clutch Motorsports, our team name, competed in three points-based categories, including pit crew analysis, three-minute elevator pitch and a race event. Since this was our first competition for the team, Browning made a statement among the New England regional teams by placing second at the invitational. Clutch Motorsports will be working hard throughout the school year in preparation for an invitation to the national finals at Charlotte Motor Speedway in May 2014. Photos were taken by Aniekeme Akpan '14 at the competition.
