Conference Provides Opportunity for Hispanic Engineering Students
BALTIMORE —Area Hispanic engineering students had the opportunity to gain valuable experience at the Society of Hispanic Professional Engineers annual conference.
It's impossible to know what these students are making because it's something that has never been created before.
"We are building a marshmallow cannon," engineering student Julian Zuluaga said. It is part of something called the "Extreme Engineering Challenge."
"It's competitive," Zuluaga said. "There are 10 teams. Each team has a company representing them."
