Wacky Wonder Works Contest
Sponsored by the Oklahoma Society of Professional Engineers – Central SW Chapter
Design and build the most complicated mechanical device to achieve a simple objective: “Turn on a flashlight”. Please review the rules below.
This example is provided solely to give students an idea of the type of project we anticipate. A steel ball rolls down a channel, then trips a lever that activates another action, etc. until the final action of turning on a flashlight*. See clarifications on the challenge (Item #16 under Rules).
