The University of Tennessee’s EcoCAR 2 and EcoCAR 3 Year One team member, Karson Stone, reflects on the unique opportunities that EcoCAR and UT have offered her in the latest issue of Mechanical Engineering Magazine, published by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers.
Karson was thrilled to see her hard work come to fruition, “Seeing my article published was surreal. Since I first joined the EcoCAR 2 team in 2012, I’ve been trying to get a publication out about the work Team Tennessee has been doing in the Advanced Vehicle Technology Competitions. The article in the October 2015 edition of the ASME magazine only made me more proud to have been a part of the Tennessee EcoCAR 3 team. Further, my mother is a Mechanical Engineer, so she was clearly shocked as well as filled with pride when she saw the article in ASME’s magazine with my name on it. Since my travels to Seattle for the EcoCAR 3 Year 1 competition, I have completed a summer internship with Schneider Electric where I worked on a new product line among other major projects. Currently, I am a Junior studying the honors Industrial Engineering curriculum and still following the progress of the Tennessee EcoCAR 3 team.”
