Full of drive and passion for automotive engineering, four middle school students from School No. 174 Constantin Brancusi in Bucharest, Romania were named champions of Honeywell's seventh annual Student Automotive Design Challenge (SADC), having distinguished themselves from their global peers.
Taking home the gold this year with their CSIRobotics project, the winning team, pictured here, is made up of: Alexandru Tudor Sima, project manager; Rares Stefan Rosu, engineering and technical manager; Mara Corina Gabriela Iordache, design manager; and, Mihai Silviu Chelariu, marketing manager.
The annual Honeywell competition was comprised of more than 350 students representing communities where Honeywell Transportation Systems has facilities globally. Honeywell employee volunteers and local teachers mentor the students through weekly classroom activities during a two-month period. The curriculum uses math, science, technology, social studies and language arts as students are instructed in researching, designing, marketing and engineering a functioning electric gear-driven toy car that must meet performance standards.
