Day 2 in Detroit

This morning started off at Lawrence Technical University, talking to the administrators, instructors, and students of their brand new design program and also to their students competing in the Formula SAE program. This school has achieved so much in such a short time. Only 2 years of any design at all, and now a growing program with students who are hyper focused on both design and engineering. We delivered a presentation and answered questions about Local Motors in a format that was very free-flowing and meaningful.

Later today we caravaned over to the College for Creative Studies (CCS) where we met and briefed Larry Erickson and his students in the transportation design department. This was a hard hitting presentation with question and answer afterward. What an amazing group of auto enthusiasts and how receptive and inquisitive they were of Local Motors. They also kindly offerred us a tour and we thoroughly enjoyed seeing the facilities.

Tonight we then went to Slow's for BBQ with almost 30 members of our community, both new and old and even some parents and spouses. Finishing around 1130pm, I feel like we have been in Detroit for days with old friends.

Late tonight, we capped off the day with an internal team crunch session over the final terms of the upcoming competition: Rally Fighter Interior Competition. Many discussions and decisions, but as always great, balanced, progress. We are all so excited about what the future brings. What a day and what feedback we have received. It is humbling and also exhilirating.

As I see, you had quite an interesting day! Actually, I wanted to visit the Lawrence Technical University, as well, cause the students there are quite talented. Some of them inspired me to write an article for handmadewritings on learning and I am really happy to meet such great people!
Thanks for the article.
