GOUVERNEUR -- Gouverneur student Tyler Boscoe was selected to attend Trine University's annual Engineering Design Expo Friday, April 26.

Seniors in the Allen School of Engineering & Technology demonstrated their projects from 1 to 3 p.m.

Projects ranged from new or improved designs for existing items to robots to a hands-free shower system. The hands-free shower system was developed for an amputee, the team said.

"Many of the student teams tackled projects to fill a need or void, such as the hands-free shower system," said VK Sharma, dean of the Allen School. "Students paired their intellect with what they have learned to generate engineering solutions to challenging problems or situations. A look at their efforts makes it exciting to think about what the future holds for these talented seniors.”

Another team tackled projects that dealt with the retrofit and operation of a reverse-osmosis, product pasteurization, simulation of the brewing process and chemical analysis and product quality assurance.
