About This Project

Picket |  2018

awarded:   $8,000 cash

 

Picket, an innovative update for the lawnmower of today, as it was explained by mechanical engineering students Austin Hirsh and Sydney Reiners, received $8,000. Hirsch said the money his team received will enable them to make a prototype that can be brought back to potential investors for possible additional funding. Picket’s calling card is its oscillating blade design and energy-efficient battery make it more eco-friendly and user-friendly than traditional lawnmowers. Hirsch said he and Reiners will be working on their prototype this summer and that it will serve as their senior design project in the coming year within the Shiley-Marcos School of Engineering.
