Car takes a hammering to benefit engineering student project

A group of fourth-year engineering students had a smashing time raising funds for their capstone project.

The 2013 SAE Baja team held a Car Smash outside Essex Hall on Thursday, charging passersby to swing with a sledgehammer at an old automobile.

“It is a fun way of raising money,” says Yan Gao, member of this year’s Baja team. “We take all safety precautions and make sure they have fun at the same time.”
