The ROVE RHS Innovators of Reese, Michigan recently traveled to Roseville, Michigan to compete in the Square One Education Network’s Underwater Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge. Throughout the day, this hardworking team competed in several infrastructure- and environmental-based tasks. They were also judged in several categories where they placed first in both engineering and craftsmanship and design innovation. These award-winning innovations included custom-designed 3D-printed connections and motor jet drives, an inexpensive car backup camera to give drivers wider visibility, and custom aluminum prop adapters designed by the students and fabricated with the help of Kremin, Inc., a manufacturing company based in Frankenmuth.
Now, the Innovators are looking forward to their next challenge. In order to compete in the Square One Innovative Vehicle Design Challenge at Kettering University on May 11, the group is working to test and improve a stock 1/10 Traxxas Slash. With innovations including Arduino-based sensors, custom bodies, and other performance modifications, they will be well prepared to tackle challenges of speed and agility. The RHS Innovators have enjoyed solving these problems as a team as they work towards this exciting opportunity.
