In October 2008 a small group of students from the Engineering, Design & Innovation course proposed building a headwind car to participate in an early iteration of the the Racing Aeolus event. The course administration thought this to be a great challenge which stroked with the learning goals of the students and thus signed off on it. The initiative of these students has led to what we now know as CleanMobility adding a hydrogen car, solar boat and electric vehicle along the way.
Each year our goal with CleanMobility is to guide our second and third year students developing into the best engineers they can possibly be. By creating an environment within which they can observe, analyse, design, build but also make mistakes, we aim to use the playful setting to build up their knowledge, confidence and design skills as aspiring future engineers.
