The Elementary Challenge Project Lead the Way - Launch students, grades K – 6, along with their instructors, Michelle Bobo and Jana Monzyk, were invited to visit the Intro to Engineering - Project Lead the Way high school class taught by Shawn Wallace.
The Challenge students were introduced to the availability and extension of the design component of the software, Autodesk Inventor, being used in the engineering class.
The elementary students have been using the same 3D programming software in a scaled down version, to develop and create 3D models to build robots and gliders and solve real-world problems, in the PLTW Launch curriculum in the Elementary Challenge classroom.
The Challenge students also were able to examine and witness the inner-workings and use of 3D printers and laser engravers.
Photos from the elementary students visit to the high school are below.
Students in the Teaching Careers Program at Four Rivers Career Center have worked to raise money during the 2015-16 school year.
Several fundraisers have been completed, including Hat and Dress Down Days, 50/50 Raffles, and a Dine to Donate at Los Cabos.
“We would like to donate part of our proceeds to the Franklin County Area United Way because we admire how much the organization contributes to education in our community,” said Teaching Careers Instructor Jenny Meers. “Making a donation to the Franklin County United Way is something we hope to do every year.”
Teaching Careers students presented a check for $100 to Dr. Rachael Franssen, Franklin County Area United Way Board of Directors member, on Monday, May 2.
“We're very excited about this donation,” Meers said. “We felt this was a great pilot year for the Teaching Careers Program, and I am excited to see it expand to a full-time program next year.”
