Our DASH+ Grand Prize Winners, EDV Technologies continued their action-packed VIP tour of Motor City with more unique opportunities to learn about the automotive and environmental industries from an insider’s perspective.
The team, along with Connie Bezanson from the U.S. Department of Energy, team mentor Kevin Schantz, and dads Jim Moghtader and Val Noronha visited the College for Creative Studies where they met with an admissions counselor and had a design session with a CCS professor.
....and took in a Detroit Tigers game.
They met with environmental professionals and toured the facilities used to test emissions standards at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency prior to heading out to the Michigan International Speedway to witness the final stages of the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE competition. After meeting with the competing teams and checking out the cars, they toured the MIS grounds and garages, and were guests of honor at the DASH+ awards ceremony. Their visit was capped off with a spin on the MIS track in the Official Progressive Automotive X PRIZE Pace Car.
