More in-depth : The group of ESDT members designed a portable storage device to organize and transport wheelchair wheels.  The team met once a week for the duration of the semester, taking the project from initial reviews, to purchasing and building, to testing and lastly, delivery of a final product.  The design considered space saving, ease of use, and durability, including a honeycomb design and space for 18 wheels.The finished wheel cart will be used to transport equipment to competition for ASPO’s basketball, rugby, and track wheelchair teams.
