High school students from across eastern Iowa gathered Wednesday at Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo to show off their creations.
In teams of up to four, students from Waterloo, Cedar Falls, Sumner-Fredericksburg, Grundy Center, Waverly-Shell Rock, Denver, Dike-New Hartford and Cedar Rapids competed for prizes and college scholarships. The competition is sponsored by Project Lead the Way, Hawkeye Community College and Best Buy. The goal is to give students first hand experience with state-of-art software and a broader knowledge of cutting-edge technology. Participants were judged by engineers, technology experts and production managers on their showcase, presentation, communication and a mock interview.
Students shared their creations, which included projects like a mouse trap powered car, Lego operated crane and claw robots.
