Taylor University’s Physics and Engineering Department will host its first annual 80/20 Inc. (Industrial Erector Set) building contest, demonstration, and ice cream social, on Tuesday, April 2, from 3–5 pm, in the Euler Science Complex.
Dr. Steven Dalcher, a faculty member in Taylor’s Department of Physics and Engineering, said the competition is open to all students and no experience is required.
Based in Columbia City, Indiana, 80/20 Inc. manufactures and sells aluminum component parts that can be fashioned into individual solutions for its customers. Officials from 80/20 Inc. will visit the Taylor campus that day for a product line demonstration and to co-host the competition. Dalcher said 80/20 will supply each team of 2-3 members with an 80/20 structural component kit.
Each team will race to complete their design in the allotted time, building from a picture. Awards will be presented to the three fastest/most correct teams.
