Science and technology students at Youngstown State University stepped into the limelight Sunday at the annual STEM Showcase in Moser Hall.

Some 50 projects, created by about 150 students, were on display for visitors, said Dr. Martin Abraham, dean of the College of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.

The projects included an Android phone app, a concrete canoe, a mini Baja car, an examination of what causes suspension bridges to collapse and alternative fuel for gasoline-powered engines.

“It’s really an opportunity for the students to showcase the work they’ve been doing, in some cases for a year or so, and to talk about it and put it on display for their family and friends and the public,” Dr. Abraham said. “I’ve seen all sorts of great things here.”
