EUGENE, Ore. -- The South Eugene High School robotics team donated two ride-on trucks to the Child Development & Rehabilitation Center.
The cars were inspired by Go Baby Go, a program that provides ride-on cars to children with limited mobility.
The six-week long process consisted of consulting with local physical therapists, soldering, drilling, computer coding and 3D printing.
Students replaced the large button and steering wheel that was originally on the truck to a joy stick similar to an electric wheelchair.
Student Kaya Winnigham said she grew to love the project.
"Before I wasn't really interested, but after doing this, I mean, this is super cool. I was like, yeah, I can definitely see myself doing this," Winnigham said.
Their teacher said the students were engaged and determined to finish the trucks for the children who needed them.
