Minister Congratulates Paradigm Hyperloop Team

Mr. Speaker, it is truly an honour to rise today in this Honourable House to congratulate students from this province whose group, Paradigm Hyperloop, will soon compete in the SpaceX Hyperloop Competition in California.

With support from the provincial and federal governments, the students of Paradigm Hyperloop are working on a ground mode of transportation with speeds of over 450 kilometres per hour.

This will be an incredible experience and opportunity for these students. Past student participants have leveraged this experience to give them employment opportunities at firms such as Tesla and Google, while others have created firms right here in Newfoundland and Labrador.

I invite all members of this Honourable House to join me in congratulating the students of Paradigm Hyperloop.

Thank you.
