This Year’s Design Challenge is to develop a physical prototype of a circulatory pump which may include pneumatic/electrical power and/or axial/mixed/centrifugal design and produce a flow>2Lt/min. Video demonstration of the prototype design, how it was built and actual working prototype with flow demonstration will be needed to qualify. Video 5 minutes and questions 5 minutes.
