February Meeting

Congrats to all the teams that took place in our impromptu design competition!

Contestants were instructed to build a glider using a minimum of seven different items selected from a hodgepodge of craft goodies in the ASME locker. Gliders were dropped from the second floor of the STEM building, and judged solely on hang time. Team “Thundarcats” gave an awe-inspiring performance placing second with a hang time of 3.58 seconds. The Thundarcat’s effort was not enough to defeat Team “one” which managed to stay aloft for a remarkable 4.83 seconds.
