Shell Eco-Marathon Success!!
PAF was honored to help Westside Engineering and Geo Science Academy successfully compete in their first Shell Eco Marathon. They were the only Houston High School to participate in the event. The WEGA Eco Team spent hundreds of hours over the past few months building a fuel effecient car for this international competition from just donations and spare parts. They were also one of only 33 teams out of 60 that entered to have qualifying runs. Driver, Amy McDonnell drove two 6 mile runs, the first at 15 mph and 111 mpg and the second at 18 mph at 122 mpg.
