Sea Perch/RC Car Competition

August 02, 2018 | 11:03 am

Last night our Engineering students competed in one of their final group activities: the Sea Perch/RC Car competition!

All week, our students have been designing, soldering, and testing their two motorized products, and the final competition proved to be a surprising, stressful, and exciting time for all of our teams.

Watch the video below for a recap of the competition, and to hear student perspectives on the entire engineering process!

Levi’s Stadium

Our Engineering students got a tour of Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, yesterday morning!

In addition to seeing the museum and the field first-hand, the students participated in a collaborative work session, in which student groups brainstormed how to make a more effective and safe face mask for football players.
