Over the summer, CalSol spent some time down in the South Bay visiting Google and VW. After an early morning start, we headed down to Mountain View with GoldRush and TOD in tow to give a Tech Talk about Solar Car Racing at Google. Thanks to the hard work put in by the team all week long in preparation for the presentation, it was a great success.
The team was all really impressed by the enthusiasm expressed by many of Google employees. We got the chance to drive GoldRush around for a bit and gather great bits of advice from people that came to see us. After, our presentation Ryan gave the team a tour of Google and arranged for us to hold a quick design meeting on a 7-person conference bike!
After leaving Google, a smaller group of us headed over to meet with our new sponsor, Volkswagen ERL.
