USA Luge is an Olympic class member organization of the United States Olympic and Paralympic Committee (USOPC) and is the National Governing Body (NGB) for the sport of luge in the United States. A not-for-profit organization, USA Luge - the official American representative to the International Luge Federation (F.I.L.) - is based in Lake Placid, N.Y. with a western office in Park City, Utah, and its natural track operations in the Marquette/Negaunee, Mich. area.
Chartered in 1979, as a direct result of the Congressional Amateur Sports Act of 1978, it is the responsibility of USA Luge to recruit, prepare, train and equip the United States National Luge Team for international and Olympic competition, as well as promote the growth of the sport nationwide.

Celestial Food Growers
The project is part of the NASA & CSA Deep Space Food Challenge, administered by the Methuselah Foundation. In short, the Deep Space Food Challenge is an international competition, sponsored by NASA in the United States where over 300 teams from 31 countries are invited to create novel and game-changing food technologies or systems that require minimal inputs and maximize safe, nutritious, and palatable food outputs for long-duration space missions, and which have potential to benefit people on Earth.
The project concept is based around the "In Vivo Cube (IVC)," meaning "Life Within" in Latin. The IVC is a self-contained grow module which will support any and all plant life inside while keeping it isolated from the surrounding environment.
Fibre Glast is proud to provide carbon fiber and other composite materials to help the team continue their mission and success.

Formula Hybrid + Electric
Founded and run by the Thayer School of Engineering at Dartmouth since 2006, Formula Hybrid takes place each spring at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway in Loudon, NH. The competition is part of the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Collegiate Design Series and is regarded as the most complex and dynamic of the series.
The Formula Hybrid competition is an interdisciplinary design and engineering challenge for undergraduate and graduate university students. They must collaboratively design and build a formula-style hybrid or electric-only racecar and compete in a series of events. This educational competition emphasizes drivetrain innovation and fuel efficiency in a high-performance application. Visit their site here.
Spaceport America Cup
