UW students rev up for green car competition

April 19, 2012

They didn't have much time or experience but it was an opportunity they could not let get away.

So, students at the University of Washington and supportive professors found an old basement in the Mechanical Engineering Annex that had a garage door. Since then the race has been on to turn that space into an automotive laboratory where UW students hope to take the national lead in new car technology.
