Students in Paul Zakaria's Project Lead the Way: Intro to Engineering classes recently completed several projects, including creating a marble bridge using only a few sheets of paper, tape, and a folder. Check out the fun pictures below of how awesome & creative these students are!
Mr. Huffer's Introduction to Construction students had the opportunity to learn about wiring light bulbs last week & gained some hands-on experience, as well.
In honor of National Manufacturing Day on October 6th, OrthoWorx held the "Think Ortho Tour" last Thursday right here in The Orthopedic Capital of the World. Over 200 8th graders from area schools & their parents attended the program that hoped to encourage students to pursue technical careers in the growing orthopedic industry. The event included tours of Ivy Tech's Orthopedic & Advanced Manufacturing Training Center (OAMTC), the Warsaw Area Career Center Welding Lab, and a local orthopedic company, Precision Medical Technologies. Students & parents both were able to learn about the orthopedic industry, advanced manufacturing career opportunities available in the Warsaw area, and the skills needed to pursue those exciting careers. The Think Ortho Tour was part of OrthoWorx's Talent Development Initiative to address the skills gap in the orthopedic industry. Special thanks to OrthoWorx, PMT, the WACC, & the OAMTC for making this event possible!

Students in Mr. Zakaria's Robotics Design & Innovation classes have been busy working in teams to design and build their own robotic cars.
Students in Mr. Huffer's Project Lead the Way: Honors Principles of Engineering classes recently collaborated in teams to design & build a bridge made out of just paper. The students were challenged to design the longest bridge by using only one piece of paper and then hang their designs in the school to see if their bridge would hold up. They did an awesome job working together to design & construct their bridges.
