Los Altos Academy of Engineering

Welcome to LASV.ORG and the Los Altos Academy of Engineering!

Emerald Coast Electrathon

The Los Altos Academy of Engineering once again competed in the 2014 Emerald Coast Electrathon. Both electric vehicles greatly improved their performance in comparison to last year’s performance. LAAE brought Speed Racer and Volt to compete in this Electrathon. Speed Racer placed 5th overall while Volt placed 11th overall in the high school division. The trip was very successful and the students learned a lot. Here is a video showing the students’ adventure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qLDKV3yz6Ws

LA Fund Racing
       This year the Los Altos Academy of Engineering has started a new fundraising program known as LA Fund Racing. This fundraising program will be hosted by Los Altos Academy of Engineering and Irwindale Speedway. Members of LAAE will be selling "Adventure 20" tickets which will go for $150 each. A portion of the proceeds will go to LAAE. With the "Adventure 20" package, participants get to drive 20 laps around Irwindale Speedway without a pace car and no instructor in the vehicle. The participant will also receive a full safety instruction course from professional racing officials and drivers as well as being suited up in full racing gear and wired in for in-car communication. Only people 18 and older may use the "Adventure 20" Package. Pamphlet can be found here
Adopt-An-Engineer
       The Los Altos Academy of Engineering has decided to attend the Portland International Raceway Electrathon this year. The competition will be held in Oregon on May 23-24 and we will need funds of roughly $10,000 to cover the expenses. Starting at donations of $10, you can support us by "adopting" a Los Altos High School Engineer. As an "Adopt-An-Engineer" sponsor, we will include your personal message of fifteen words or less in the upcoming newsletter. Our newsletters contain information regarding our recent activities and events! With your generosity, we will be able to fund this year's project and travel expenses. If you are interested in adopting or donating, please contact us or any of our engineering students.
