The University of Waterloo Alternative Fuels Team (UWAFT) was happy to be an exhibitor at the Junior FIRST LEGO League (Jr.FLL) Expo, as part of the Youth Appreciation Week, in Livingston, New Jersey this summer

Jr. FLL is a global robotics program for children ages six to nine. This year, there were more than 40 expos hosted by local organizations from the U.S., Canada and Europe. UWAFT was one of only two university teams presenting at the event. UWAFT’s exhibit included a five minute video aimed at young children to show them how university students are finding innovative uses for alternative fuels, focusing on their EcoCAR work. 

The event attracted media attention and generated UWAFT and EcoCAR coverage – you can read the article on, here. Congratulations, UWAFT!

Check out the team’s amazing video that was on display at the Jr. FLL Expo below! The video includes several images that depict how the UWAFT EcoCAR works, one-on-one interviews with key members of the team and a sneak peek into their garage. Thanks for the inside look, UWAFT! We look forward to seeing what you have in store for Year Three.
