Young Minds + Engineering Technology = Great Things

Friday, May 08, 2015
When you pair young students with engineering technology, something great is bound to happen. That's why we're so excited to sponsor the Coopersville High School 2015 Electrathon Race at Berlin Raceway! The juniors and seniors had two cars in the open class race, car 222 and 999. These races are made up of electric cars built entirely by the students. Throughout the school year, the engineering students get hands on experience and dedicate many hours to assemble, test, and modify their cars.

Eric Lutz, a junior at Coopersville, and son of IT Resource’s Co-owner Gary Lutz, is captain of telemetry on the engineering team for both cars. Eric is responsible for the overall monitoring of the car batteries, electronics and other components, and wirelessly transmitting that information to the remote team. The team can then analyze this data and figure out ways to modify their car and ultimately increase speed.

We are exceptionally proud to join other Coopersville businesses, including one of our customers, Northern Physical Therapy, in supporting not only our local school but the engineering students as well. The technology efforts that these high school students are receiving can be an integral part of their future success in the engineering field. Go Broncos!
