Students in Ms. Lassacher's Computer Science Principles and Mr. Quah's Aerospace Engineering classes have spent the past several weeks working on their final project.  

For students in the STEM concentration, this is their capstone project. Students were tasked to create something that would be of use to the school. They were required to submit a project proposal detailing the timeline for completion, design sketches, a materials list, and a description of the project. Students are required to learn a new skill and build something physical. They are also allowed to include a programming component using a Raspberry Pi or an Arduino microcomputer.  Students have access to the 3D printer, laser cutter and CNC machines.
