Mae Jo University winners return home

The winners returned home from Beijing recently and were
congratulated by their school mates.

The Mae Jo University team returned from Beijing where they took two titles in the Bosch Power Tools Asia Cordless Race 2011, beating out students from China, South Korean, Malaysia, and the Phillippines.

The Mae Jo team finished the final race of go-karts powered by Bosch cordless lithium ion technology in 1.43 minutes to take the championship. A team from Beijing Institute of Technology took second.

The Mae Jo team also won the 100 meter race showcasing the go-karts acceleration which took the race in 8.956 seconds.

The students designed and build all the parts including steering, the body and brakes themselves and powered the vehicles with engines using Bosch lithium-ion cordless technology.

The team’s secret, according to their adviser, was the lightweight of the go-kart and choosing a driver who weighed only 40 kilograms.

Bosch company executives designed the competition to encourage students to think creatively and practically.
