Everyone had a great time –the legislators were able to get a peek under the hood of the Camaro and see exactly what the team has been working on. To help with the visuals, the team brought their 3D-printed powertrain of the Camaro to display at the event. It was a great way for the team to talk about the exciting and innovative technology coming out of The Ohio State University.

Legislators and staffers alike were in attendance, coming out to speak with the team about the redesigned Camaro and the team’s accomplishments over the past three years of the competition. Representative Adam Miller, Representative Richard Brown, Senator Frank LaRose and others were there learning about EcoCAR 3 and were welcomed to interact with the team and check out the championship car.
