White receives community service student grant
MET student, Ethan White, received a grant from the Student Grant Program for Community Service/Service Learning Projects February 23, 2011. The Community Service Student Grant Program, facilitated by the Office of Engagement, provides grants to Purdue students or student organizations for community service projects. Grant amounts range from $100 to $1,500.
Last year, the grant was written to procure funds to purchase parts for the Frontier High School (Chalmers, Ind.) Super Mileage Challenge Team. They received $300 and used it to purchase parts to upgrade the car's drive train. This year the team decided to purchase a MicroSquirt Fuel Injection module. The team plans to purchase the rest of the components for the EFI system and use the MicroSquirt in the car in 2012.
The Frontier High School Super Milage Challenge Team consists of eight high school students and particpates in the Super Mileage Challenge held in Indianapolis.
