Students enrolled in the Engineering Academy will present their annual project showcase at Apollo High School on Friday, Jan. 11.
Students in Jonathan Leohr and Steven May’s classes are working on projects daily in order to demonstrate their expertise in the areas of reverse engineering and robotics. The projects will be spotlighted as students describe the learning and implementation processes that were involved in creating these demonstrations.
“Every year, students in the Principles of Engineering class are tasked with creating a machine that sorts marbles of different materials using VEX robotics parts,” Leohr said. “Throughout this project, students learn not only how to design, build and program, but also how to properly execute the engineering design process. Students are also learning how to create web pages in order to present their documentation.”
Projects will be presented from 8 – 9 a.m. and from 2 – 3 p.m. in Rooms 207 and 208.
The showcase will be presented to school administrators and parents, and is also open to the public.
