2015 MESA USA National Engineering Design competition results

The 2015 National competition was held June 17-20, 2015 in Ogden, UT.  This high level competition showcases the best of MESA national competition teams as they use their critical thinking, creativity and teamwork to deliver an engineering-based solution to a real world challenge

The competition this year was the Prosthetic Arm Challenge.  Teams built a low cost Prosthetic Arm and had to demonstrate that it could complete a set of pre-defined tasks. They also had to write a technical paper, build a poster and make an oral presentation.
