TTU Baja SAE Visit

Program Description:
In this activity students will visit Tennessee Tech's Mechanical Engineering Department's BAJA Team to learn the history of BAJA, learn how the team is created and who the team members are and what their role is on the BAJA team, speak to BAJA members about their progress and plans for the future, and ultimately view the TTU BAJA Car.
