It was a special competition focused on sparking an interest in studying science at the university level.
Ivy Tech Community College hosted the third annual Spartan Match High School Engineering Competition.
Eight area high schools broke into teams of two or three and competed in ten different competitions.
The high school students built wind powered vehicles, a self propelled glider, and marshmallow towers.
Teams were graded on designs as well as an oral presentation.
     
David Will- Dean, School of Technology
"We have 250 students in this building and they're all engaged in their project. The more students we get involved in stem is critical for the economy and local industry. We have local businesses that need students that have some technology skills, so it's important to the community."

First place in the Spartan Match went to Clay City High School with Linton High School finishing second.
This Fall Ivy Tech Community College will begin offering an Engineering Technology program.
