The Tech article, Boston Teen Life Fair

Last week, Eleanor and the SEVT were featured in The Tech, MIT's student newspaper.

On Saturday, February 7th, we will be displaying Eleanor at the TeenLife Boston Community Service Fair in Chestnut Hill, MA. This will be Eleanor's first public appearance since Australia. In fact, she hasn't been shown in the U.S. since we visited the Detroit Science Center this past summer.

Adopt a Cell!

Now that the Global Green Challenge is over and the new semester is about to begin, the SEVT is actively working on the (still unnamed) vehicle that we hope to race in 2011. In addition to design work, that also means fundraising. A lot of fundraising.

We recently began an "Adopt A Cell" campaign to raise money for the most expensive part of the car, the solar array. For $50, you can adopt one of the 1500 solar cells that will cover Eleanor's successor. You'll also get a nice picture of Eleanor, a subscription to the team newsletter, and you'll be recognized on our website (as well as on this blog).

We've tried to make cell adoption as simple as possible. You can donate with a credit card or send a check. All donations are tax-deductible. Please contact us if you have any questions.

Thanks to the following people who have already adopted cells:

Joseph A. Buttner
Goro Tamai
