Engineering students modify toy truck for toddler

GRANGER, Ind. -- Ten Notre Dame undergraduate students in a service engineering class set out to make a joy stick controlled toy truck for a 2-year-old boy with cerebral palsy.  They worked on it all year long and finally delivered it to Austin Tuesday afternoon.

The students cut out the steering wheel, re-routed the steering, put in an electric motor and button he can press.

The students said it works perfectly, but they did have a few setbacks along the way.

The students agreed it was one of the biggest projects they’ve done and – one of the most rewarding.
