Hi Mark,

I am a student in Mechanical/Aerospace Engineering and am currently 
working with Dr.Ingley on several solar energy projects and 
competitions. I am involved with the solar energy race team and helping 
build the Photon, a solar powered bicycle here at UF with the American 
Solar Energy Society.  Dr.Ingley is acting as an advisor on several of 
these projects. I am also in charge of the solar photovoltaic systems at 
the IFAS Biodiesel facility. I know of one competition you might be 
interested in for entering your Stirling engine. Feel free to get into 
contact with either Dr.Ingley or myself about these projects or
