On Thursday March 8th, 2018 students from the Bridger Solar Team participated in the Montana State University Engineer-A-Thon. "Each year during National Engineers Week in February, sixth-graders from Chief Joseph Middle School or Sacajawea Middle School in Bozeman spend a day at MSU participating in hands-on engineering activities led by MSU students involved in engineering organizations. College of Engineering students explain the engineering principles involved in making ice cream, designing and constructing a model oil pipeline and bridge, and programming a robot, among other things!" (Engineer-A-Thon). We took this opportunity to show students how DC motors work as seen here http://www.instructables.com/id/The-Simple-DC-Motor/.
