Creativity Award, Best Solar Charger Award, 1st Performance Race, 2nd Endurance Race, Fastest Lap
Coach Tolbert states: The entire event was a challenge for the team. Going into the event I was out sick for several days which is a critical time for any team to prepare for an EVent. The team boarded for travels to Raleigh, NC at 5 am on a holiday weekend and returned by 6 pm. The team really pooled their resources and efforts together and accomplished their very best. At NC State the team worked harmoniously together. Everyone assumed their position and executed. This EVent is one that will not be forgotten.
