Each year there is an A-team, which builds a new tractor from the ground up. In addition, an X-team modifies the previous year’s tractor to pull again at the national competition in June.

2. Special Committees
i. Engineering Expo Committee
Engineering Expo is a two-day event held every two years at the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s College of Engineering. Expo is run entirely by students and brings over 10,000 visitors to campus biennially. Participants at Expo include Fortune 500 industry leaders, engineering student organizations on campus (including ASABE), individuals displaying their engineering projects and ideas, and thousands of students and members of the community. During the first day of Expo, elementary schools and middle schools are invited to explore what engineering involves. Each day the event is open to the public. ASABE participates every time this event is held biennially and either does this or CALS day for kids. Our committee is responsible for designing and setting up our chapter’s ASABE exhibit as well as scheduling members to display the exhibit.
Chair: Jack Jones
