"...Sam Paterson is studying Mechanical Engineering and is currently in his penultimate year. Sam joined the team just prior to the 2009 World Solar Challenge and was a key race team member during that campaign. In 2010, Sam was a driving force behind organising for the team to break the Guinness World Record for Fastest Solar Powered Vehicle. He is passionate about improving vehicle efficiency stemming from his background in high performance skiff racing. Also resulting from his involvement in sailing is Sam’s experience with carbon fiber composites, this was further enhanced by leading the manufacturing effort of the 2011 top shell with a team of fifteen."
Sam is looking for opportunities to team up with Google Glass for documenting and connecting this project to the wider international audience.
