Turner Logic celebrated National Engineers Week by hosting an Open Engineering Competition. The competition took place at the Pearl Stable Courtyard on February 24th. We were fortunate to have great weather, and we are very thankful to the Pearl for allowing us to host the competition there.
The competition involved building an R/C boat capable of picking up different color fishing bobbers and dropping them in a safe zone. It proved to be a difficult challenge. We had a total of eight teams enter, but only four were successful in completing boats for the competition. There were a total of $2,000 in prizes on the line.
The teams that made it to the competition were:
- FBD Big Airboats
- Central Texas Drone Users Group (CTDUG)
- SWRI Swamp Monsters
Big Airboats came out on top followed by CTDUG in a close second. Turner Logic challenged the Big Airboats team in an offer to allow them to double their prize money, but the Turner Logic design was victorious in the final round. Congrats to all the competitors, but especially to our 1st and 2nd place winners: Big Airboats and CTDUG.
