Mercer County Technical Education Center‘s “The Kraken Krew” team was named grand champion of the 2023 Culineering Challenge. Each team consisted of two culinary students, two engineering students, and one social media influencer who worked together to design and build an aquatic robotic vessel to navigate in an obstacle course at the Marshall University Aquatic Center. While in the water, teams delivered desserts to a panel of judges. The social media influencer documented the team’s progress over various platforms.
