Tech Wars 2019

At the annual Tech Wars event held at Niagara County Community College, the team of Megan Wojciechiwski and Grace Ameis constructed a wooden bridge that took first place. Spanning a distance of five feet, the bridge supported the max weight of 500 pounds. First place was also won in the Vex robotic event by the team of Shane Carter, Devon Horton, Nick Morlock, Ryan Rajapakse, Trevor Schupbach, Adam Cramer and Tyler Murphy. Taking a third place finish in the seismic tower design was the team of Madi Enzer and Olivia Langlotz.
