WACS Students Build Science and Math Skills Through Engineering Studies

WACS sixth grade students culminated their study of composites engineering by visiting the Composites Materials Engineering Department at Winona State University. On their tour they were shown products that are made in this field of engineering which include bicycle frames, plastic paddles, oars and countless other consumer and business products. Through the sixth grade visits with Steve Maki and RTP in Winona and meeting with WSU Professor Faribors Parsi, as pictured, the students were able to recognize how the fundamentals of mathematics, science, and engineering science fit with applications in engineering. Pictured are students finding the strength of design in composite products. This year long learning event has instilled in the students a goal to find a life-long field of work and also helped them to understand how engineering decisions and applications in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts can change the world.
