Students from Danville, Elizabethtown, Line Mountain, Loyalsock and Milton high schools and Watsontown Christian Academy attended workshops in the college’s plastics laboratories, led by Penn College students. The day ended with a remote-controlled-car competition between teams from Loyalsock and Milton high schools. The high school students molded their own car frames and raced them on a 300-foot track in the college’s Field House. The race was developed by student Benjamin Campana for his senior project and implemented by students in the plastics and polymer department’s project management class.
