Akron Rotary Canoe Outrigger System
Project Leader: Jillian Hilenski
August 2016 - May 2017
Project: To design a canoe for Akron's YMCA's Rotary Camp with a removable device to keep the canoe from tipping over in the water.
The team met weekly, taking the project from initial reviews, to purchasing and building, to testing, and lastly, delivery of a final product. The brackets holding the canoe together were 3-D printed. The pototype design was tested several times in the University of Akron's ONAT pool. The finished outrigger was used by campers at the Rotary Camp during the summer.
