Intersection: Interning With FIT's Jet Dragster Team
What does it take to pilot a car that can go from nought to 280 miles per hour in five and a half seconds.
That’s what interns on the Florida Institute of Technology Jet Dragster Racing Team learn all about.
From the education desk this week on Intersection, we revisit a conversation with the founder of Larsen Motorsports, Elaine Larsen, and two interns at her drag racing team: driver in training and journalism student Kat Redner, and pit crew chief Paige Sanchez, who has a masters degree in mechanical engineering and is working on a PHD in aviation sciences.
This conversation first aired on Intersection in May 2017.
