This is from John Thornton, former Fringe head mechanic and current employee in the Robotics Department who is developing a long-needed center for composites. There is a forum today on campus at 4:30. See the full details.
Composite technology has long been an underground phenomenon at Carnegie Mellon. It is now time to bring this movement into the open for the first time.
Please join the newly formed Composites Development Center, part of Carnegie Mellon’s Field Robotics Center, as it hosts Carnegie Mellon’s first Composites Forum this Monday, November 4, from 4:30 to 6:15 p.m. in Newell-Simon Hall room 1305. The discussion will feature NASA Senior Advisor for Composites and Structures Mark Shuart, as well as an overview of the Composites Development Center, Sweepstakes (Buggy), the Society of Automotive Engineers, and the Solar Boat project team. The Composites
Forum will be an opportunity to engage in a discussion about the evolution of composites development at Carnegie Mellon, current research and projects, and the future of composites technology and education at CMU.
Please forward this information along to anyone you think might be interested in composites development, current NASA projects, Buggy, SAE, or the Solar Boat project. We hope to see you there.
