Clarkson Spotlights

Clarkson student Kate Kerwood smiles for the camera

"I'm part of Clarkson Formula Knights and I'm the aerodynamic subteam lead, which means I design the aerodynamic package of the car. When I first starting driving the car, I thought I was going to be terrified...but once you're in the car and in the zone, it's just really freeing. And driving at competition, you get all those excitements and the adrenaline rush. And it's a really, really great experience that I don't think I would have anywhere else."
