Lego Engineer and Stertil-Koni Rise to the Occasion


When the senior year for Mechanical Engineering student Jack Ward was put on hold at the University of North Carolina due to the COVID-19 crisis, he certainly how to make the best of a difficult situation.

Ward’s approach to constructively pass the time was – naturally -- an innovative engineering solution. Using LEGO, he built a custom set o

f Mobile Column Lifts like those engineered by the world leader in heavy duty bus and truck lifts, Stertil-Koni.

Then, the LEGO master deployed them to hoist a replica WWII tank, which he also made from LEGO. As Ward explains, “Stertil-Koni offers lifts that can carry a large range of heavy loads, which is an interesting feat from an engineering perspective; and I like the diverse applications of Mobile Column Lifts.” Once he graduates from UNC, Ward wants to work on designing mechanisms and machinery, especially within the automotive industry. His eye-catching LEGO project is a great example of how people are exercising their creativity and imagination in inspiring ways, despite the pandemic.

Way to go Jack!
