Students 'live in a yellow submarine'
If you break out singing the
Beatles' "Yellow Submarine"
during a meeting of the Universi-
ty's Human Powered Submarine
tram, prepare for some backlash.
With 22 active members, the
HPS team is constantly in the
process of building, modifying
and testing a single-person, ped-
al-powered submarine. The sub
is used to compete against teams
from around the world at the
annual International Submarine
Races, and yes, it's yellow.
Engineering junior Jeremy
Werner, the team's design man-
ager, said he initially joined in
order to become certified in
scuba diving and learn how to
pilot a submarine.
"How could I resist?" Werner
Werner said the team has
become increasingly competitive
over the past few years.
"We have won fifth place and
innovation awards in the past
two competitions," Werner said.
"This year we have increased our
team's size remarkably, and we
are taking on much more design
work than ever before."
Dedication and effort are inte-
gral to the club's success, with
team -leaders working on the
submarine for between six and
10 hours a week.
The time commitment, how-
ever, is not all work and no play.
Werner said team members
enjoy scuba diving, testing the
submarine in the University's
Marine Hydrodynamic Labora-
tory and competing with peers
from other teams and institu-
"We are part of a handful of
people who get to scuba dive in
the MHL, and seeing the sub-
marine doing runs in the model
basin is the most fun you can
have out of bed," Wernuer said.
"Then comes the competition,
where we get to meet students
from around the world, share our
designs with them, and then race
our submarine against theirs."
