EcoEagles Are Running Full Throttle
It’s been a busy week for the EcoEagles Outreach team. Aside from preparing for the Winter Workshop in Austin, TX this coming Wednesday, the EcoEagles were busy recruiting, hosting and formulating outreach events.
On Tuesday, January 24th, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University held their student activities fair. All student organizations were proudly exhibited across the campus’ Legacy Walkway and West Lawn – The EcoEagles featured under the “Ignite” tent.
Also on Tuesday, January 24th, the EcoEagles made their way down to Kennedy Space Center in Port Canaveral, FL to give a presentation to NASA employees. The EcoEagles had been invited down to discuss their work on EcoCAR 2 back in the Fall semester. The team presented the EcoCAR 2 program, the EcoEagles efforts and had a laid back discussion with those in attendance. Coincidentally, there were a high number of Embry-Riddle alumni in the audience.
Another update for the Outreach team was the acquisition of the Outreach and Business office located in the College of Business. The office space was donated to the EcoEagles team in order to give the outreach and business teams our own space to work out of. This space comes in handy when working with the newly acquired outreach team members.
In collaboration with the College of Business, a group of marketing students are taking on the task of marketing the EcoEagles and assisting the Outreach Team. As part of their curriculum, EcoCAR 2 has become their syllabus. Coordinating partnerships with student organizations, planning events, and working off of the EcoEagles Communications Plan to execute the awareness initiative are some of their main goals.
One big project in the works right now is the EcoEagles ‘Green Up” campaign, which will be coming to the ERAU campus. This campaign will be collaboration by the EcoEagles and numerous diverse student organizations. Currently we are laying down the ground work for this campaign, so you’ll have to be patient to see what’s in store!
