    • -the Place You Find Purdue Identity Sheng Qiu Professer: Laura Eidam 6/29/2010
    •  Introduce PSR garage ◦ location ◦ layout  workshop  conference room  storage room  Introduce PSR ◦ solar cars ◦ professional teamwork ◦ hand on experience  Introduce Purdue identity
    • The garage’s appearance is not so outstanding. As the name tells you, the garage looks just as normal as a storeroom, while actually it is a cave with treasure inside. The garage is at the back of Lily’s Hall. There are two trailers of PSR club beside the garage. PULSAR and Sport-ii are stored in trailers. “current car” purduesolar.org. purduesolar, 10.

    • The garage is well separated and make students work efficiently. •The 1st floor consists of two 14ft*22ft rooms, a conference room and the workshop. •The 2nd floor is a storage room. “PSR_2-28-09_Lockheed_visit 005” purduesolar.org. purduesolar, 10. Feb. 2009. web Mon. 28 Jun. 2010.
    • There is a wall with full series of spanners, Boxes of screws and nuts screw driver, saws, pliers and hammers are placed in a cabinet.
    • There is a 6ft*3ft table in the working shop, A driller table and a grinder are which is big enough for both manufacturing available for simple and assembling the vehicle. manufacture process.
    • In the conference room, there are 2 long tables that allow 20 people to discuss together as 2 separated groups. In the 2nd floor, all of the materials like honey cone or carbon fiber are stored in big shelves. The storage room in the 2nd floor makes the workshop and conference room always tidy and clean.
    •  PSR was found since 1993, aiming at building competitive solar powered vehicle and educating the public about renewable energy.  3 main teams, aero-dynamic team, electrical team and mechanical team work together.  There are a lot of chances to have hand on experiences.
    • PSR's first vehicle was finished in 1993, but it did not qualify for the Sunrayce in 1993. Heliophile Pi was a major redesign for the team. PSR was also awarded the Sportmanship Award for the helpful hand lent to Ohio State after an accident. “Boilermaker Special” purduesolar.org. purduesolar, 10.

    • SPOT I placed 13th in the 2003 North American Solar Challenge. It was the first of PSR's cars to be constructed of carbon fiber and a composite chassis. PULSAR is PSR's seventh car. It is the smallest and lightest PSR car to date. “sport i Special” purduesolar.org. purduesolar, 10. Feb. 2009. web Mon. 28 Jun. 2010. “current acar” purduesolar.org. purduesolar, 10.

    • Aero-dynamic group is in charge of generating the model that have the least air resistance. Mechanical group is responsible for designing the driving system. Electrical group works on transferring solar energy into the engine. “Heliophile 1.5” purduesolar.org. purduesolar, 10. Feb. 2009. web Mon. 28 Jun. 2010. “IMG_0411” purduesolar.org. purduesolar, 10.

    • The day I took these picture from the garage, they are test two materials to make the under pan of the vehicle. 1. Cut down carbon fiber. 2. Wax the carbon fiber sheet. 3. Put on ‘glue’. 4. Attach honey cone and fiber.
    •  Purdue engineering education focuses on hand on experience and teamwork.  The engineering school provides class like ENGR 195, and EPICS, give students chances to practice the skills that are important in future employment.  These programs and classes, just like PSR, lead student the next step of technology knowledge, to use the knowledge in real engineering.
