Buckeye Middle School Pepsi+Mentos Vehicle Competition

Gabe Nogueira and Elizabeth Bransford have been leading this team for the past few months, and have worked very hard on organizing this fascinating project. Gabe has provided the STEM Club access to 3-D Printing technology which has enabled Mr. Ferrell's students to design vehicle parts on the school's Autodesk Inventor software for the purpose of this competition. Gabe has been printing their parts here at OSU, which will allow the STEM Club to purposefully utilize 3-D prototyping in a competition environment. Mr. Ferrell's STEM Club is unique in that students have immediate access to machine-shop and wood-working tools at Buckeye Middle School. Pictures from one of the visits are below.
