We have a new faculty (not so new now that he is one year old into the department). Last semester, he revamped a course and converted it into a fascinating experience for the students. In a period of just less than 4 months, the students built this amazing scooter. You only need to ride it to understand what it is. I was extremely skeptical of falling down when it was not powered, but it is pretty good.
Youtube has a video… Enjoy!!!
