Change Makers – Team Eirloop, Irelands Hyperloop Team
Join us Friday the 18th May in Aviva Ireland, Hatch Street, to hear from future changemakers from Team Eirloop, Irelands team in Elon Musks Hyperloop competition sponsored by SpaceX. The aim of the competition is to construct a pod capable of accelerating to around 400mph in an almost-vacuum, 1-mile long tube in California. The competition was initiated by the owner of SpaceX, Elon Musk, who actively engages students in the development of his concept of the Hyperloop.

Team Eirloop is the only Irish team remaining on a shortlist of 20 submissions. The Eirloop team members have been invited to race their pod at the SpaceX headquarters in California alongside the other world finalists during the summer of 2018.

Come along to hear about their journey so far as they discuss their design of a Hyperloop pod, their progress and the competition on their mission to win over world renowned Elon Musk. This event is organised as part of EUMaker Week 2018, and supported by Aviva Ireland, the Rapid Foundation and Learning Tech Labs. #EMWeek18
