HAZEL STUDENT COMPETES IN BUNGEE EGG DROP CONTEST SDSM& T FRESHMAN ENGINEERING
Nine freshmen engineering teams at the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology ( SDSM& T) will demonstrate their bungee egg drop design projects The freshmen engineering students will compete to see whose bungee design project will allow them to drop an egg 20 feet and come as close to the floor as possible without touching the floor. As part of their enrollment in the innovative Professional Practices in Engineering and Science ( PPES) program at SDSM& T, the students have been working this semester to determine the engineering and physics concepts behind the design of a support harness and bungee cord attachment that will achieve the egg drop objectives. The students have incorporated three- dimensional graphics, computer programming and spreadsheet modeling as part of their overall design projects.
Students involved in the project, with their respective engineering majors and hometowns, are as follows:
