Frederick County Career and Technology Students Win Design Viability Award at
the National Real World Design Challenge.
The national Real World Design Challenge (RWDC) competitions were held in Washington DC on the weekend of April 19-21. The seven member team from the Engineering CAD program at the Frederick County Career and Technology Center won the prestigious Design Viability National Merit Award. This year RWDC, the fastest growing nationwide STEM program, had teams from across the country create business plans, mission plans, and full UAV/drone designs using professional aeronautical and engineering software to create a complete small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS). The performance of the search and rescue drones, designed with a variety of power systems and camera/sensor payloads, are evaluated by aviation experts in the government and in commercial industry. The drone designed by the team from Maryland was deemed to be the most viable design solution presented.
Team members included Troy Grove (CTC & MHS), Garrett Radtke (CTC & MHS), Jeet Kumar (CTC & TJHS), Blair Plombon (CTC & TJHS), Devin Shields (CTC & TJHS), Jordan Smith (CTC & THS), and Tayler Evans MHS).
