ABC 40 Airs Video Story on Team ZoomMass

WGGB-TV ABC 40 in Springfield has aired a story on this year’s UMass Amherst Supermileage Team, which calls itself Team ZoomMass. The star attraction is an eight-and-a-half-foot-long, 100-pound, teardrop-shaped, neon-green vehicle designed to get as much as 1,500 miles per gallon of gas at the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) National Supermileage Competition in Marshall, Michigan, in early June. "The students have been working very hard," said Jonathon Rothstein, the Team ZoomMass faculty advisor from the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department.

Engineering Scholarship Furthers CSG Mission

On April 27, Kathleen DeVito and Maureen Huffam represented the Conservation Services Group (CSG) at the University of Massachusetts Amherst to award the 2010-2011 CSG Energy Efficiency and Clean Energy Scholarship to recipient Colin Roderick, a graduate student from Connecticut in the Mechanical and Industrial Engineering Department. An earlier version of the UMass scholarship was created to commemorate CSG’s 25th anniversary and give back to the community.

He also learned the lesson of a lifetime. “What made the biggest impact on my life?” Alex comments about his time in Europe.
