McLaren’s Entertainment Division has been hard at work helping to engineer the public debut of TAIT Towers’ Six Degrees of Freedom Ride System, which integrates a virtual reality experience provided by Major Mega. This immersive ride, named the “Mars Landing Simulator,” debuted early this week in a pop-up event celebrating the premiere of the National Geographic Channel’s new mini-series “Mars”. This ride system propels a 2 person ride vehicle on a dynamic flight path using six high-powered winches.

Matthew B. Kawczenski, PE, SE and Janelle Hall, PE, LEED AP, from McLaren’s Pennsylvania office, participated in an impressive CANstruction event at the Lehigh Valley Mall last week. The design of this Mack Truck was constructed using over 8,100 cans, and was selected as the "Juror's Favorite". For 12 decades Mack Trucks have been an iconic symbol representing the Lehigh Valley. The structure will be up for two weeks before the cans are donated to the local food bank, Second Harvest. McLaren is proud to be engineering social good, one can at a time!
