Academy of Engineering and Green Technology Sends Five Students and Their Teacher to NASA Moonbuggy Competition

 
The Academy of Engineering and Green Technology at HPHS sent five students and one teacher to Alabama to take part in the NASA Moonbuggy Competition.  Given strict criteria and guidelines, our students have spent months designing and building the best possible moonbuggy that meets all of the criteria.  There are 99 teams competing, the AEGT team is #66.  You can view live streaming of the competition at the link below:
 
 
The credit goes to Mr. Scheuermann, our Physics teacher, who advised the team, and did a great job of making the process student-centered.  He required the students to do ALL of the building, designing, and testing, to think critically and collaboratively as true engineers, along with Mr. Len Beman, Social Studies Teacher who is with our students in Alabama.  And of course the students, who’s enthusiasm and motivation for learning and being a part of this team was inspiring.  A great thank you goes out to the UConn GK-12 Program who sent Engineering fellows to the school to work with Mr. Scheuermann and the students and helped to fund a great portion of the project.
 
We are very proud of our staff and our students and wish them the best of luck.
