The NHS engineering academy has been distinguished by the PLTW once again for the second year in a row. They were recognized for their hard work and great projects.

“Being distinguished is very beneficial to the school because more students get recognized for their academics,” junior Riley Herzer said.

Engineering teacher, Cliff Greer, helps the kids with their projects and is glad that the engineering team had gotten distinguished.

“To be recognized from our hard work feels good and definitely helps the kids,” teacher Ciff Greer said.

PLTW stands for “Project Lead The Way” which is a nonprofit organization that develops STEM curriculum for elementary, middle and high schools.

“I believe that being distinguished means that we are recognized for our accomplishments by the PLTW,” junior Grace Watts said.

The NHS engineering academy does all kinds of projects and builds parts of machines. They go on field trips to colleges to visit their engineering classes.

The NHS engineering academy went to FGCU to build a solar powered go kart and to look around at their school.

“When our team went to FGCU to build the cart, we got to look around at their engineering facilities, it was very cool”,”Our class is looking forward to getting distinguished next year for the 3rd year in a row,” Teacher Cliff Greer said.
