Pre-Engineering STEM Capstone Project to Design an Oil Cap Remover Tool to Help General Aviation Cessna Pilots

Abstract: This conference paper is authored by Sandy Feola and is part of the 2103 ASQ Advancing the STEM Agenda Conference proceedings.

This Extended Abstract paper will describe one high school team's experience as they apply pre-engineering course competencies to solve a problem that women and older general aviation pilots encounter - difficulty to open over-tightened Cessna 152 or 172 engine oil caps during the pre-flight check. Industry professionals from three local companies provided STEM (science, technology, engineering, math) mentorship targeted to support project plan activities best suited to their key support strengths.
