Badgerloop is a student organization at the University of Wisconsin-Madison that focuses on real-world engineering and transportation challenges. Badgerloop has two creations, Pod I and Pod II, and is planning to attend the international competition with upcoming Hyperloop Competition II on August 25th-27th, 2017.
This year they are working to create a light, fast and safe pod; setting a goal to perform best overall at competition and establish Badgerloop as a contributor in the development of high-speed transportation related technology! The organization is trying to determine if Hyperloop can become reality!
What is Hyperloop?
Hyperloop is a proposed mode of passenger and freight transportation that would propel a pod-like vehicle through a reduced-pressure tube that could potentially exceed airliner speeds.
Badgerloop is an organization Plymouth Foam proudly supports. In the above photo, Plymouth Foam EPS blocks are used to create their carbon fiber shell along with other various materials.
We wish Badgerloop the best of luck at their upcoming competition!
