The DHS Engineering Math class attended STEM Day (Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math) workshops hosted by Lee College.  The sessions included Robotics, Slime (Polymers), Physics of Music, Chemical Process Industry, CADD, Forensic Ballistics, and more.  The students each participated in 3 of the workshops.  They all appreciated the experience and said they look forward to enrolling in some of the various programs, as well as the potential subsequent careers in their fields.

 

The NHRA & US Army also hosted a STEM Day at Royal Purple Raceway in March.  Engineering Math students were invited to hear about various careers surrounding the drag racing industry.  They even got to visit with a NASA engineer who explained his work on astronaut spacesuits.  Then the class enjoyed a sunny day walking the pits, talking with race crews, and watching drag races.

 

The VEX Robots were finally put to the test after weeks of design and assembly.  The teams are still tweaking the chassis and adjusting the claws to improve on the objectives of picking up “soccer” balls and moving quickly and accurately.
