Green Week was officially a success for the EcoMakers. The Alternative Transportation Expo proved to be a great way for the team to get students educated and involved in EcoCAR 2! With a table set up from 10:30 am until 3:30 pm, team members posted up in Purdue’s beautiful memorial mall to hand out cups and pencils, explain the competition and the team’s unique vehicle architecture, and getting other boilermakers excited about EcoCAR 2.
Once there, the team took advantage of the opportunity to get the word out about EcoCAR 2. This was a fun and unique way to advertise the competition, its sponsors and the EcoMakers themselves.
Another way they attracted students was with pizza! After all, who doesn’t love pizza? Overall, the Expo was a huge success. It was a way for the team to get to know each other better, have fun and get the word out about the EcoMakers and the EcoCAR 2 competition!
