EWI & the Pinewood Derby car race – Update
By Maggie Perez on Thursday, March 29th, 2012
Our EWI engineers are in their final push in preparation for this Saturday’s big Pinewood Derby race to be held at the “old” Battelle building off of King Ave. in Columbus, OH. The stock car and unlimited entries are coming along nicely. Today our engineers will be testing and fine-tuning our Pinewood Derby cars. Everything is going as planned and EWI promises to deliver several unusual, entertaining and high speed entries.
The engineers who are a part of this project are:
Jeff Root – Applications Engineer, Design, Control & Automation
ALSO the Pinewood Derby attracted the attention of the Discovery Channel Canada’s Daily Planet show. They will be in town and will be interviewing a representative from each team. The Columbus Dispatch will also be there to witness the race. Other competitors in this event are Battelle’s Armored Car Division, OSU-CAR, and of course one Cub Scout.
