Towards the end of our first quarter, we were given the opportunity to present our concepts to design director Jake Sclare, who graduated from CCS and worked in the automotive industry for a good number of years. Some of the class already knew Jake prior to this transportation class - Professor Gamboa worked with him and student Jean Kee interned under him for 3 months.
We presented full-scale pink foam models of our final concepts to Jake. He gave all of us constructive feedback on how to improve on certain aspects of our design, and a good direction to move forward with. He promised to be back for the unveiling of the three vehicles at the end of our 2nd quarter, and we all looked forward to making a good impression on him with how far we would have come since then.
