UC Berkeley just completed its homecoming weekend festivities which included us beating UCLA 43-17 at our brand new stadium as well as many of the engineering teams out on display for everyone to see! Impulse was out in front of Davis Hall on Saturday next to the super mileage vehicle, human powered vehicle, and concrete canoe teams. Hundreds of parents, alumni, and UC Berkeley affiliates wandered by our vehicle, all of them with mouths wide open in awe.
After a few hours of showing off our car to the public we packed up the display and drove Impulse back to the Richmond Field Station. We decided to take San Pablo Avenue instead of the freeway for the return trip because we wanted a more calm drive back. It’s also fun to take city streets because so many more people get to see the car and snap photos of it.
