From the Director
It is hard to believe that we will soon have the first quarter of 2014 behind us! I guess all of this snow makes us lose track of time…
I’ve been thinking about the passage of time having been reminded last week that it has been a year now since I landed at the Museum. I continue to marvel at the progress we’ve made and be daunted by how much work is still ahead of us. But one thing I am sure of is that this is where I belong. Since arriving, I have had several affirmations of that fact.

Highlights from the Collection
On loan to the Museum's permanent collection is Infinium, the 2009 solar electric vehicle designed, built and made available by the University of Michigan Solar Car Team.
The team is a student-run organization that is comprised of four unique divisions that focuses on design, performance, marketing and race logistics. Since its establishment in 1990, the team has built 12 vehicles, won the American Solar Challenge seven times, and placed third in the World Solar Challenge five times; the most ever by a North American team.
