On Friday, October 28th, Glenda Ritz, the Superintendent of the state, visited our school corporation. She was lead around by two second year members, Nathan Petrie and Lizzie Heisler, while she toured Penn High School. Along with Glenda Ritz, Nathan and Lizzie lead around the Superintendent of our school corporation, the principal of our school, and various other administrators for our STEM department. Glenda Ritz visited our school because we were recently STEM certified. While she was at our school she saw many of our science and technology classrooms in addition to our student run IT department.

 Included in her visit was the robotics lab where Mr. Langfeldt met with Glenda Ritz to talk about our robotics program, our recent accomplishments, and to show her our machining shop. Glenda Ritz watched robotics team members David Wojciechowski and Brandon Ziegert use our CNC router, to learn more about the technology we use in our shop and see how the machine works by carving the Team 135 symbol into a piece of wood. 

    

We are very honored to have shared some of the information of our team and our accomplishments with the State Superintendent, Glenda Ritz.
