I’m a bit late in posting, as the WaterBros team got the great news in mid-September. We are beyond excited about getting to continue in the competition and will be ready to deploy at Jennette’s Pier in early 2022.

Here is a great write up by the College of Engineering on our success moving to the DRINK stage.
I’m happy to be a (small) part of the new Center for Additive Manufacture of Advanced Ceramics led by Dr. Brigid Mullany here at UNC Charlotte. It is a great group of people that I think have the skills, insight, and perspectives to advance ceramic manufacture regionally.
The WaterBros team is eagerly awaiting the judging of the CREATE stage of the Waves to Water competition. It was a wild and quick summer, but I’m proud of the work that we did and hopeful that we get to continue our adventure at Jennette’s Pier in April.
Best of luck to Appalachian State University’s Solar Vehicle Team as they compete in the Formula Sun Grand Prix and American Solar Challenge. The car looks great as you can see below and it was a pleasure working with them on some analysis of the roll cage and manufacturing the occasional components.
