Christopher Vasconcelos, an NEIT adjunct faculty member, still manages to find time to work with members of the college’s Quadricycle Club as they continue to build a replica of Henry Ford’s quadricycle. Chris took advantage of a great opportunity and had his vocational high school students from Old Colony Regional Vocational Technical High School collaborate with New England Tech Quadricycle Club students on this project. He took the quadricycle engine frame to his high school Metal Fabrication and Welding students to see if they could assist.
As a result, the water jackets and engine frame assembly were welded by three of his high school students. NEIT club members then assembled the engine at their last meeting of the quarter. Great job, Chris, and all of the students involved as the progress of building the replica rolls on!
