CARA Education and Outreach:
CARA/AIP Snow bike

This project, a collaboration between CARA and the Art Institue of Pittsburgh (AIP), is working to design a bike appropriate for use at the South Pole. The bike, called the Ice Prowler, went down to the Pole for the first time in Jan 2000.

This work is sponsored by the NSF through the Advanced Technological Education program.

Bill Farrell was unable to make the trip. Steve Butler, Assistant Director of the School of Design, went in his stead.
