Busy day for high school STEM students

March 11, 2016

In three separate events, future scientists and engineers from area high schools tested, learned and experimented in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) activities on March 10.

Approximately 30 high school students dual enrolled from Ladywood High School conducted load tests on design projects as part of their course, Engineering Graphics and Design (ENGR 1022) in the highbay.

Another group of dual enrolled students from Bishop Foley High School picked up their designs of a credit card shaped multi-tool in their course, Basic Engineering Graphics and Computer Aided Design (ENGR 1020).

“The course allows students to take projects from conception to design to testing,” says Dr. Kristie Plantenberg.  “Determining the point of failure allows students to build better projects.”

In a Science Fair event at Cass Tech High School in Detroit, approximately 200 students gained first-hand experience of chemistry and physics experiments with Dr. Klaus Friedrich and Meghann Murray.

The College of Engineering & Science looks forward to welcoming hundreds of area high school students the Tech Day competition event on April 15.
