    Formula Hybridô was created in 2006 by the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth as a design and engineering challenge for undergraduate and graduate college and university students. They must design, build, and compete an open-wheel, single-seat, plug-in hybrid racecar. This car must conform to a formula which emphasizes drive train innovation and fuel efficiency in a high-performance application.

    Please join us for this presentation featuring ELP Senior Fellow Wynne Washburn, the Deputy Director of the Formula Hybrid International Competition, located at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College. Wynne's presentation will discuss:

    The importance of Formula Hybrid;
    The connections between hybrids and sustainability;
    The difference differences between formula hybrid vehicles;
    The Formula Hybrid Competition


    Wynne is the Deputy Director of the Formula Hybrid International Competition, located at the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth College. She focuses on creating a learning environment for college and university students from around the world to design, innovate, create, and compete high-performance hybrid and electric vehicles. This year she is incorporating further education on issues of sustainability by requiring students to understand the lifecycles of materials used in their Formula Hybrid vehicles. Overlapping her work in Formula Hybrid, Wynne spent five years exploring issues of diversity and tolerance as she co-created the Regarding Diversity Project. Traveling to Spain, Bosnia-Herzegovina, and Kerala, India she spent extended periods of time researching and conducting interviews to better understand why and how diverse populations co-exist. Wynne received her BA from The Evergreen State College and is currently working on her Masterís thesis at Dartmouth College on the issues of climate change and alternative energy.
