Congratulations to Students Placing 3rd in PA Governor's STEM Competition

Congratulations to Pat Howard, Sara Jones, Ally McDowell, and Steve Beightol for placing 3rd in the annual PA governor’s STEM competition. In this competition students were challenged to design and construct a device to solve a problem in the community where they live. This group chose to create a gutter-guard insert to keep leaves out of gutters. Their project involved using CAD software at THS to create their gutter guard design they first sketched by hand. Students then used a 3D printer to make their initial design and several prototypes of improved designs. Finally, students took their final design to Oil Creek Plastics in town and met with and engineer to discuss production processes and necessary steps that would need to be taken to produce their product on a large scale.
