The Riverside High School 3d design and printing class is working on STEM based projects. The first project the students were presented with was a catapult competition. The students worked individually or as a two person team to design a catapult, they were limited to a three inch square build platform. Originally the competition was to be held in the classroom but that soon had to be changed as the first catapults were sending the 3d printed cannon balls flying across the entire classroom. The competition was moved to the commons area of the High School where the student competed in distance and accuracy. The catapults all performed well and the best part of the project was that all the catapults look different and they all had unique ways to use rubber bands as the propulsion source. The next project is a 3d printed egg drop!! Pictured Student Charlie Ponas
Students had the opportunity to hear from several accountants who work in different accounting professions. Speakers consisted of representatives from local public accounting firms as well as entrepreneurs. A student board of accounting students from Kings College also were on hand to answer questions and give an account of their own experience in college. Students were able to ask questions and network with accounting professionals."
