Cal Poly Pomona’s Formula SAE team puts its creativity and engineering skills to the test on the race track during annual competitions. Recently, 18 team members applied those same skills – along with patience, enthusiasm and communication – when they volunteered their time to help K-12 students.
Through a partnership with A World in Motion’s Learn Twice Initiative, the team members became mentors to students at local schools, teaching concepts such as force, friction and motion. For their efforts, they were awarded $2,000, which they will use for their annual SAE competition, which will be held in Lincoln, Neb. in June.
