MECH 2 SpaceX Landing Pad Competition: April 18, 2018

The spring MECH 2 Competition took place on Wednesday, April 18, with 20 teams of second-year mechanical engineering students competing in a SpaceX design challenge. Teams designed remote-controlled landing pads that could be used to transport a rocket booster back to shore.

The competition took place in a 60-foot pool, with teams competing head to head.

Their efforts were recorded by several media outlets, including Xinhuanet, and Breakfast Television (segment starts at the 2:25 mark).

The Daily Planet also featured the competition on their show.
