Engineering students from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology visited Chadron High School today. CHS physics and advanced math classes participated in several hands-on learning engineering projects. Groups of students were given different projects to problem solve creations of paper constructions as well as the opportunity for all students to assemble and disassemble a steel bridge.
The SDSM&T students explained the many different competitions that they participate in ranging from Formula One racing, the steel bridge, and a concrete canoe. The importance of communication, teamwork, and knowledge was repeated several times.
The SDSM&T students are currently traveling to many panhandle schools to encourage students to pursue a career in engineering.
