Back to Kinetic Sculpture Racing


Grounded for the past two years, our engineering students have not been able to participate in the Lowell Kinetic Sculpture Race. The team resurrected their sculpture from 2019 and made a number of improvements that demonstrated how their learning, creativity and independent problem solving has continued to develop.

At the end of the race, YDO’s Pirates of the Merrimack team was presented with the People’s Choice Award. Ed Brennen’s article for UMass Lowell recounts the race-day story. All of Lawrence should be proud these kids… we sure are!
