Project Power Play is a capstone project that connects USC Rotaract, USC’s Society of Automotive Engineers, and a corporate sponsor to enhance maneuverability for children with mobility challenges. Following a model designed by Georgia’s Etowah Electric Eagles FRC robotics team, South Carolina college students will design, build, test, and deliver mobility solutions through robotic technology. The project will allow students to apply their STEAMM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Mathematics, Medical) to serve others and impact the local community. By partnering robotics teams with civic originations like Rotary groups, students learn project and time management, problem solving, how to direct learned skills to real life applications, and teamwork.
