Campbell Elementary's “Team Unbeatables’” was selected as this year's winning entry for the Fluor Engineering Challenge. Team Unbeatables’ came up with their winning design during Campbell’s celebration of the “Global Day of the Engineer.”

This year’s challenge was to create a volleyball machine consisting of two devices, separated by a paper net, which could launch and return a ping pong ball. Students were provided with “simple materials” such as cups, rubber bands, paper, tape, and craft sticks in order to bring their design to life.

Their submission in the 2019 Fluor Engineering Challenge is one of twelve winning entries for the United States drawing. Flour commended the innovative ways the students approached this year’s project, employed the engineering design process, and built a smart solution.

Through the Fluor Engineering Challenge, students have been able to engage in hands-on experience inspired by real-world engineering challenges. This year, the Fluor Engineering Challenge received more than 1,400 submissions from around the globe and Campbell Elementary was presented with one of twenty $1,000 awards. Congratulations, Cougars!
