EcoEagles and Basketball Stars

Embry Riddle Basketball Players and EcoEagles picThe Embry-Riddle EcoEagles were fortunate enough to have three team members excel above and beyond the classroom, garage, and the basketball courts. Cesar Pastrana, Daniel Kiesling, and Brandon Serle joined the EcoEagles for EcoCAR 3 Year 1 as part of Senior Design. During their time with the team, the three engineers were able to contribute to the mechanical team, communications team, as well as the trade show display for this year’s final competition.  

Having three engineers on the Men’s Basketball Team gave the EcoEagles distinguished diversity and recognition from the athletic department. Their involvement gave the team a unique opportunity to display the 2013 Chevrolet Malibu from EcoCAR 2: Plugging In to the Future courtside during the 2015 Sun Conference Tournament. The event displayed the efforts of the EcoEagles to two sold out games and unveiled what to expect for EcoCAR 3.
