Winning ChemE Car Team Announces New Sponsors
The Cornell Chemical Engineering Car Team has had a legacy of success since its beginnings. Most recently, the ChemE Car team has placed first in the Regionals (2011) as well as the Nationals (2008, 2010).
The team has worked hard to ensure that the students can effectively learn the material in the Chemical Engineering curriculum while being exposed to its practical applications. However, this success would not be possible if it were not for sponsorships from companies in the field.
We proud to announce our new sponsors as of Fall 2011: General Motors has contributed $5,000 to our team; Air Products and Chemicals, $2,500; and Corning, $2,000. Sponsorship from these companies will go into our research efforts for our new fuel cell-powered car. The ChemE Car team also intends to explore the idea of wet cell batteries this year.
"We are very proud to be sponsored by these companies and believe that their contributions will not go to waste, " says Qinyi Chew '12.
