ADA - Two Ohio Northern University students placed second in a competition that included other universities and senior chapters at the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) Annual Meeting in Detroit, Mich., from May 31 to June 3.
Trevor Robinson, senior technology education major from Caledonia, Ohio, and Chris Miller, sophomore technology major from Ft.
