Ecorep Tamsin Stringer ’22 of Bloomington, Ind., poses at the new electric charger stations behind Underhill in the Merrill Gym parking lot.“Underhill Electric Vehicle Chargers Project “Bates has installed other EV chargers in the past. This project will be different for three primary reasons. First, we have already received a grant from CMP for the make-ready infrastructure portion of the project, which has historically been the bulk of the expenses for EV charger installations. Secondly, this project will include installing level 2 chargers for the first time at Bates, which will allow for monetary collections for charging, tiered charging for different kinds of customers, and incentivize to move one’s car once it's fully charged. Finally, this project allows for future EV charger installations in the same location for much lower cost, because the make-ready infrastructure for more EV chargers will be easily accessible.

And that goal is usually about some part in the launch sequence. So then, they will do the full launch; the thing will eventually come down and crash land and explode. And then everyone thinks itís a failure. But then he goes, ëNo, thatís fantastic. We got these beautiful stats that we needed, that weíre looking for in our iterative process of making a spaceship that works.íìSo today we got a full crew of members of the club to get to the 10th hour of the launch, and that was fantastic. I think everyone learned so much today, and for me to do that with the group is really rewarding because personally I know that Iím the only one thatís done it fully through. So to be able to pass down as much knowledge as I did today so that the club continues is just a thrill.î Members of the High Altitude Ballooning Club lay out their gear on May 15 in preparation for a launch from Garcelon Field.IDs for students launching the weather balloon on Garcelon Field on Saturday, May 15, 2021.tara ellard white shirtMax bartley grey tshirtJackson donahue tan collar shirtTucker barber long hairLoren Andrews green mask white tshirtMatt clayton garnetHi altitude and balloon clubChristopher barkerPeter riley drone
