Nease Electrathon Vehicle Takes Shape

One of the Career and Technical Education-related clubs at Nease High School is the Transportation Technology Club, which incorporates engineering skills into real-world design processes.  Many of club members are part of the Stellar Academy of Engineering, utilizing the engineering skills they learn in the classroom and applying them to the process of designing and creating an electric race car.  This week, the club members were seen measuring the chassis of the electric race car in order to create a digital models in AutoCad and Inventor so that they can design aerodynamic bodywork and plan component layouts and wiring diagrams.  The club hopes to enter their race car in a local Electrathon competition, coming up in 2024 at Florida State College at Jacksonville.
