Cub Scout Pack 1031 and Boy Scout Troop 1033 from Beltsville, Md., visited the Terps Racing formula vehicle team in the SAE Engine Testing and Projects Laboratory at the University of Maryland campus on January 30. The Scouts - aged 7-12 - came to learn more about automotive science as part of a car-themed month of learning projects. Terps Racing undergrad students Mark Bellingham, Jeff Gamerman, Paul Godfrey and Mike Palaszynski were available to answer the Scout’s questions.

Terps Racing offers Maryland undergraduate students the opportunity to design, build and race their own baja all-terrain and formula racing vehicles in various regional and national competitions, gaining invaluable real-world automotive experience.
