It’s Moonbuggy Time Again, Again!

Posted: March 22, 2012 in Activities, Classes, Special Projects

Autumn and Winter Quarters have passed since our last update. Time sure flies when….. you’re taking classes!

Since then, Welding Engineering students attended FABTECH 2011 in Chicago, participated in a Lincoln Electric welding bootcamp, graduated 5, and now are getting ready for the April 27 Welding Engineering Open House and The Great Moonbuggy Race 2012.

Moonbuggy Captains Jared and Issac sent in a few photos to show what the team is up to.

Isaac tig welds the suspension tabs onto the frame.

Jared, Isaac, and Ben discuss some welding on the suspension tabs.



The challenge for the team, of course, involves more than welding. Students design, build, budget, purchase, market, and race the buggy. Check back later in April for Moonbuggy updates from Huntsville.
