Engineering Students Have This Problem Licked

Engineering Tech II students at Ipswich High School have undertaken a sweet challenge: They've designed machines to measure how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Roll pop. Data results varied from a low of 230 to a high of 500 licks. Technology Education/Engineering teacher Bill Gallant discovered the project idea in "Technology Teacher" magazine where a teacher in Cincinnati's Princeton High School introduce his students to mechanical engineering concepts through doing the lollipop assignment.
