Cambridge exam term in CUER
It is coming to the end of May here in Cambridge. Most people are stressing out about exams, essays, projects, dissertations and master theses. But we here at CUER also have a fun extra bit of work to do in building a solar-powered car! Right now the progress is a bit slower due to some exams and project deadlines, but we are slowly ticking away with the progress. Here is a collection of a few thoughts from our brave team members surviving the last term of the year. 
Filton Wind Tunnel Testing

In our first Aerodynamics post of the year (and more importantly of the competition year) it is time to shed some light on the ‘special testing’ Aleksi alluded to in his last post. One of our major supporters, Airbus, granted us some testing time at their wind tunnel facility in Filton, Bristol. Testing EVA in her full scale glory was an incredibly exciting start to term and presented an opportunity for the aero team to gain some invaluable experience. 


At the beginning of February, EVA was once again wheeled out to go and meet the public. This was her first local, public event and it could not have gone better.

Gadget Show Live

It’s been a busy few days for CUER but we’re now settled in at the NEC in Birmingham and having a great time. We first arrived on Monday night and moved Resolution into our exhibition space before checking into our accommodation to get some rest before the show opened the next day. Tuesday was press day, we met lots of interesting people and presented our car to the visitors in the Innovation Theatre. Wednesday was then the first day the show was open to the public and it has been very busy but wonderful to see so many interested people of all ages keen to hear about our project! 

CUER in Monaco

In July, Aleksi Tukiainen, Lucy Osborne, Alan Jamieson, Aurelia Hibbert and Adam Gristock traveled to Monaco to exhibit Resolution at the Solar1 Monte-Carlo Cup.
