business unit, describe the solution

her article in the February issue of MOMENTUM.
Word count limit: 1,000
Deadline: November 1
Submissions should take the form of an article (not a technical paper)
and include a headline, sub-headline, and article body. Up to six photos

Article submissions and questions about the contest should be sent to
momentum@sae.org.
Separately from this contest, and as an ongoing practice,
MOMENTUM pays student authors 25 cents per word for articles they
submit. MOMENTUM is always seeking students to author articles on
their SAE Collegiate Design Series team or any other activity relevant
to mobility engineering.

ROWAN UNIVERSITY SAE CHAPTER
SHOWS HOW TO DO COMMUNITY
OUTREACH
A car show and a free barbecue were among the features
of the second annual Rowan Motorsports Day, held this
year on May 4. Sponsored by the SAE Chapter at Rowan
University in Glassboro, N.J., it also featured a display of
the school's Baja SAE and Formula SAE cars.
"This is an opportunity for our chapter to showcase
our student projects to fellow students, faculty, and
the general public," said Chapter President Elizabeth
Henning. "The event was held in the field behind the
South Jersey Technology Park, where our chapter
frequently tests our cars on our student-made track. We
give anyone 18 years or older the opportunity to testdrive any of our three Baja cars. Also, our new Formula
Electric team showcased their progress following the
first year in their two-year design and manufacturing
process. We were very excited to have NJIT's Baja team
in attendance."
Now a junior majoring in mechanical engineering,
Henning will serve as Chapter President again as a senior.
"Our chapter emphasizes reaching out and inviting
alumni to our event as well," she told Update. "Overall,
we had about 200 people at the event."
She added: "Holding this position has helped me
develop skills in leadership, public speaking, coordinating
groups of people, networking, event and trip planning,
managing a budget, and mentoring underclassmen. I
believe that these skills will have a huge impact on my
career moving forward."
In addition to her duties as SAE Chapter President,
Henning has been a member of the university's Baja SAE
team for three years.
