Lacey, Wash. – Saint Martin’s College will host
engineering students from across the Pacific Northwest April 1-2 during
the 2005 American Society of Mechanical Engineers (ASME) Regional
The public is invited to come see the exciting
“micro-Baja” remote-control car competition from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday,
April 2, at the Worthington Conference Center, 5300 Pacific Ave. S.E.
Contestants will race the models they designed and built from scratch on
a challenging obstacle track. Saint Martin’s student engineers will join
students from Alaska, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, Washington, and the
British Columbia and Yukon territories in showing off their best car
“You’ll get to see very innovative designs that the
students basically hand make,” student conference coordinator John
Sabolchy said. “It’s a whole lot of fun to see how everybody’s ideas
come to fruition and see the actual results of what they’ve done.”
The event is free for spectators, although all
visitors are asked to check in at the event’s registration table.
The Regional Student Conference will also feature
student presentations and a poster competition from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
