Students in the engineering classes have been designing and constructing electrically-powered model aircraft that they will fly around a central tether with a goal of carrying as much cargo as possible. Students spent time researching the various parts of an airplane and learning about factors that make for efficient wing designs. At this point students have constructed their planes and have begun testing their models while also making adjustments to optimize their wing design. Students in the Foundations of Technology class are using the KeyCreator CAD software to design cars and wheels that they will build using the 3D Touch printer and the Roland milling machine. When completed students will race their cars against one another in a “Pine Box Derby” type tournament.
