Engineering students at Caesar Rodney High School in Camden, Del., have modified Power Wheels cars to create a safer and lower-cost way to help younger students in their district with special needs.
Students used technology and 3D printers to help create, modify and test custom parts for their cars.
The team is one of 15 national finalists in the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow competition. If the school is chosen as one of the top five winners, it will receive a $120,000 technology grant.
