Correct Craft, in partnership with Cleveland State Community College (CSCC), has provided resources and facilities for a mechatronics class designing and building an amphibious vehicle that will operate on land and water.
The class of third and fourth-year high school students taking the advanced college class started with a 14ft fibreglass hull and deck and have attached a chassis, axles and a drive system.
In addition to opening its Tennessee manufacturing facility, Correct Craft donated components such as steering, gauges, grab handles, dashes, lighting, seating, horn, audio, canvas, hardware and more to advance the team’s efforts.
“These students are very bright and having the opportunity to take them to Correct Craft Tennessee’s highly innovative facility was something from which I know we all benefitted,” said professor Chris Jones, the student advisor on the project, in a news release from the boat company. “Creating a vehicle that can operate in water and land is unique and will challenge the students, but the time and resources donated by Correct Craft will help us accomplish it.”
“Our culture of continuous improvement and ‘Making Life Better’ extends well beyond our own team and we are always happy to help students broaden their horizons,” stated Correct Craft President and CEO Bill Yeargin. “We really enjoyed contributing to their educational project and we are looking forward to seeing the finished product.”
