HOUGHTON — Michigan Technological University engineering students — supported by General Motors’ Chevrolet — designed and built two prototypes of hand-cranked three-wheel cycles for wounded veterans to ride in endurance races. So what better place to unveil their handiwork than the nationally televised Army-Navy football game on Saturday, Dec. 8.
The cycles will be used by the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans in future competitions.
Kick-off is at 3 p.m. A member of the Achilles Freedom Team will ride one of the prototype cycles out onto the field during a first-quarter time out, accompanied by Michigan Tech senior James Cook, GM Chairman and CEO Dan Akerson and GM engineer Alexa Ellswood.
