Ever wanted to build your very own formula style racing car? In Episode 15 of Visions we go behind the scenes with a group of 30 final year engineering students who are doing just that. We also check out a University program helping mentally ill young people find work.
Formula SAE Racing Team:
The Melbourne University Motorsport Website has detailed information on this years team, car and the competition itself. It can be found at http://www.mame.mu.oz.au/formulasae/mambo/. The University's final year Mechanical and Mechatronics engineering students also presented the 2007 Forumla SAE car as part of the Meridian exhibition, an annual showcase of final year engineering projects. More information on the Meridan exhibition can be found at http://www.mame.mu.oz.au/meridian07/.
Program Gets Mentally Ill Youth Working:
A world-first employment program is helping mentally ill young people find work – with its inaugural trial proving almost three times more successful than the service provided by government-contracted job agencies. For more information go to http://www.orygen.org.au
