A record number of Tulsa-area elementary, middle and high school students will test their boat building skills at OSU-Tulsa's Engineering Design Challenge on Thursday, Feb. 20 in the Main Hall Commons.
During the challenge, teams of students design, build and race a self-propelled, motorized watercraft. The challenge, part of National Engineering Week, provides an opportunity for students to learn the basic principles of engineering design, problem-solving and teamwork.
Volunteers are needed to assist with boat construction, testing and race timing. A variety of shifts are available and engineering skills are not required. Student volunteers are welcomed. To volunteer, visit the OSU-Tulsa website. Volunteers receive a free T-shirt to wear the day of the event.
The Engineering Design Challenge is sponsored by Spirit AeroSystems of Tulsa.
