Transportation Class – Super Mileage Team
Northridge High School had a new class this past year where students’ primary mission was to design and build a high mileage vehicle to compete against other schools in the state. The transportation class is made up of engineering students who have taken at least 2 engineering courses at Northridge as part of the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) program.
The class worked diligently on all aspects of the car from braking to drive train to the aluminum frame that was welded with help from Northridge students at the Elkhart Area Career Center. Students worked countless hours to design and build the car in order to participate in the big day at O’Reilly Raceway Park in Indianapolis at the end of April. The Indiana Mathematics Science Technology Education Alliance’s (IMSTEA) Super Mileage Challenge had approximately 40 cars entered from 34 other schools in Indiana. This year the NHS Super Mileage Team competed in the stock class, which allows no modifications to the engine. After a long day at the track, the team was able to see their hard work pay off as they completed several qualifying runs (each at 10 laps around the 5/8 mile oval track) and took home the “Best New Team” trophy. Congratulations to the 2012-2013 NHS Super Mileage Team!
