New students are beginning their S&T college careers during Opening Week, which started Monday. They have been participating in Project X throughout the week, which will conclude on Friday, Aug. 16, with a team competition racing throughout the heart of campus.
The races will begin outside Schrenk Hall around 8:30 a.m. and finish at the Havener Center around 4 p.m. An awards ceremony will begin at 9:30 p.m. outside the Havener Center.
Project X is a team-based experiential learning project. Student teams have modified a remote-controlled vehicle and will be judged on several objectives.
Faculty and staff are invited to attend the races, awards ceremony and any other events during Opening Week. Campus participation during orientation sends a strong message of support to new students.
