OH WOW! selects winning exhibit by YSU STEM students

Posted: Updated:
YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio -

A partnership between Youngstown State University and the OH WOW! Center gives first year engineering students to test their skills.

Out of 55 group projects from Y.S.U.'s STEM college students, seven were selected for final evaluation Thursday from representatives of OH WOW!. The challenge of the project was to create a new exhibit that would be a part of one of the existing ones at OH WOW!.

"They had to design, build, test. They evaluated OH WOW!, where they let children play with it, made improvements and that's what you see today," said Kerry Myers, Director of the First Year Engineering Program.

OH WOW! Vice Chair, Mark Peters added, "They get a chance to work on projects that are very meaningful for their careers and what OH WOW! gets is a chance to take a look at new ideas and try to figure out how to take those ideas and make them into new exhibits."

The winning project illustrates the force of water on a structure.

More than 200 students participated in the group projects.
