Meet Team Primer, a group of mechanical engineering undergrads who will be competing in the next Shell Eco-marathon in Houston.

MEET TEAM PRIMER…A group of mechanical engineering undergrads at the University of Houston Cullen College of Engineering who will be competing in the upcoming Shell Eco-marathon in Houston from April 25th to 27th. The 12-member team is currently building an ultra-energy efficient, battery-powered vehicle from the ground up. Team Primer will enter their vehicle, named “EcoPrimer,” under the marathon’s “prototype” class, focusing on maximizing the car’s efficiency rather than the driver’s comfort. The team members’ tireless work on “EcoPrimer” will double as their senior Capstone Design projects, the penultimate project for all graduating seniors at the Cullen College.

Team Primer is currently sponsored by the Department of Mechanical Engineering at the UH Cullen College of Engineering, the UH Engineering Alumni Association, Zoltek, the American Bureau of Shipping, and the United States Business Council for Sustainable Development (USBCSD).
