A golf ball rolls into the hole in FPE's second place-winning entry, which also featured.... fire!

Sponsored by the University of Maryland's Engineering Alumni Network, each department in the Clark School goes head-to-head in a challenge to develop a machine - capable of doing some random task (e.g., hitting a golf ball into a hole) - in an unconventional way, but aligned with their department's discipline.  This year, FPE undergrads offered a medieval-themed spectacle, complete with a dragon and flames! 

The event was featured in Terp Magazine - to read the news article, A Hole in One, in it's entirety, please follow this link!
