First-year engineering students make recycled cars

Students in the First-Year Engineering Program, under director Kerry Meyers, participated in a project earlier this semester to create a vehicle out of recycled materials. The program partnered with Green Youngstown and the Mahoning County Green Team, as well as Dan Kuzma, YSU manager of recycling.
