Groups will compete Monday Oct 28 during class. 


Each group will be given one 10′ PVC 1/2″ pipe. The cart must fit a student driver in it. It will be pushed by another student. It will need to go 10 feet, turn right or left, then go 10 feet, then stop. The driver must be able to steer it and stop it without touching the ground. Additional rules will be handed out to groups Friday. Fame and Glory. For best overall design, best mechanical design, and best video.
