A team of fourth-year mechanical engineering students hoping to fund their capstone project are taking their show on the road Thursday, June 21, visiting campus offices door-to-door to solicit donations to their bake sale.
“We are going to spread out and hit every building,” says Abou Rkie. “We will offer our supporters a cookie for any donation they can make.”
The team’s project involves the addition of a solar panel to an electric wheelchair.
“The panel will provide extra power to the battery,” Rkie says.
The students have raised monies toward necessary materials, but remain about $600 short.
