Advisory: Record-setting motorcycle, fertilizer-spraying drone highlight Engineering Expo

By Steve Lundeberg, 541-737-4039, [email protected]

WHAT: Journalists will have the opportunity to see roughly 230 senior capstone projects on display at the 2024 Oregon State University College of Engineering Expo, sponsored by Pacific Power. More than 1,200 students will take part in the event, which is free and open to the public, sharing their work through models, demonstrations and posters. Journalists are free to interview any of the presenters.

Projects include a record-setting 50cc motorcycle; a fertilizer-spraying drone; a cryptocurrency trading bot; a virtual reality environment for personalized therapy sessions for mental health patients; a lollipop that acts as a comfortable, stress-free method for testing for strep throat in children; and a synthesizer that converts waveforms drawn on a touchscreen into unique sounds.

Individuals, companies, national laboratories and other government agencies sponsor the projects and provide mentorship to the students. Boeing, Daimler, Genentech, Hoffman Construction, HP, Intera Incorporated, Jacobs, NuScale, Pacific Power and Portland General Electric also sponsor awards; representatives from the companies will act as judges and presenters.

In addition to the student capstone projects, a range of College of Engineering clubs and organizations, including the Concrete Canoe Team, Formula One Racing, Baja Racing, Human Powered Submarine, and rocketry and aeronautics groups, will have displays at the event.

WHEN: June 7, 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. An awards ceremony and reception will follow.

WHERE: Two adjacent venues on the OSU Campus: the CH2M HILL Alumni Center, 725 SW 26th. St., and the LaSells Stewart Center, 875 SW 26th St.
