On Friday, February 1st 2013, The University of Calgary Solar Car team had the privilege of unveiling our fourth generation car: Schulich Delta. The unveiling of Schulich Delta was one of the biggest events we have hosted thus far. It made us proud to see people appreciating all of our hard work, whether it be with regards to the unveiling itself, or more importantly our new car. It was great being able to thank our sponsors and supporters in person.
The design of Schulich Delta is unlike any of our past generations. It is considered a more realistic car as it provides room for two people and plenty of space in the trunk. We are hoping that this new design will connect more with the community and in turn promote sustainability to both individuals and society.
During the unveiling we were fortunate enough to have some remarkable speakers. Our Race Logistics Manager, Brigitte, did a wonderful job emceeing the event. Our co-chairs, Mico and Susie, really represented what our team and vision are all about through their speeches. I cannot stress enough how much work they have put into this team, and we have been able to reach these milestones because of their leadership. Apart from the car, our unveiling really revealed the passion and the effort we put into trying to educate, innovate and inspire.
We would like to give a special thank you to President Cannon and Dr. Lynne on their amazing speeches and support. Also, once again thank you to our sponsors and supporters.
Expect many more great things to come from Schulich Delta!
