National Engineering Design Challenge:
This competition is the ONLY MESA Day project in which all MESA states compete in. The challenge is to build a low-cost prosthetic device that attaches below the elbow and can accomplish two tasks successfully:
- Distance Accuracy: achieved by tossing bean bags into a target zone in the fastest time
- Object Relocation: fastest time achieved by placing all objects into and removing them from a specified container
Teams will also write a technical paper and prepare and academic poster presentation.
State Competition: May 16, 2015 @ University of Pacific
