The second competition of “designing and building the ball throwing Mechanism” has been held by Scientific Association of Mechanical Engineering on May 4th 2016, from 13 till 18:30 in “Shahid Chamran Lyceum”.
Participant teams had to design and build a mechanism that was able to throw a golf ball to a horizontal basket in a specific height and distance. The Referees of the competition were professors of UT. Price, the level of automaticity, and creativity in design were among criteria to judge the teams.
The first competition was held on April 2015 among students of “University of Tehran”. The second competition was held due to the students’ ovation and its novelty in the national level.
This event was held to make a connection between theoretical courses and their applications, motivate the students and encourage them to do their projects as groups. It was also a good opportunity to make Intercommunications among students and professors.
The registration process was completed in March 2016 and 109 students as 29 groups from different universities such as University of Tehran, Sharif University of Technology, Alzahra University, Kharazmi University, Iran University of Science and Technology, University of Isfahan, K. N. Toosi University of Technology, Islamic Azad University South Tehran Branch, Islamic Azad University Central Tehran Branch, Shahid Rajaee Teacher Training University and Islamic Azad University Islamshahr Branch were registered.
In the day of the event, each system was first checked by the referee group. The qualified groups started using their mechanisms to throw balls and the bystanders were so excited.
We wish that programs of this kind will be held in future again and again. Finally, we appreciate the Scientific Association of Mechanical Engineering’s endeavors and helps.
