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.
