Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) The work of some Binghamton University students will be on display at a special technology showcase.

Tech Works will feature Technology that Drives Us.

It explores the technology developed in New York that improved vehicles and machinery.

The showcase will feature vehicles or drive systems dating back to the early 1920s.

The Raymond Corp. has two of its products on display, one of which is a go-cart that was built in collaboration with Binghamton University students as part of their Capstone Projects.

"We had regular meetings with them. They would come to the Raymond facility and we would come down to BU facility and work with them on the cart, review drawings. They spent a number of hours at the Raymond Corp. wiring the cart under our supervision," said Fernando Gonclaves, of Raymon.

Visit Tech Works in Binghamton from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sunday.

Guest speakers will start at 1:30 p.m. on topics like fuel cells and air-cooled engines.
