On Thursday, December 7th and Friday, December 8th, a group of students from Team 135 went to Discovery Middle School to give an informative presentation on the available STEM classes at Penn High School. This involved Biomedical Sciences, Agricultural Studies, Machining, Construction, Engineering, Robotics, and more. PLTW Classes were also a topic of discussion. We presented to roughly 300 students during 10 different class periods. After the presentation, we demonstrated our Community-Outreach Robot, named “KiwiBot”

Shortly thereafter; the students were taught the basics of TinkerCADTM, which is a basic Computer Aided Design system made by Autodesk, who also makes the professional-level InventorTM software. The students were instructed by Drason Chow on how to make a rocketship in-software, then were allowed to express their individual creativity by making something of their own design. Hopefully, through our visit, we inspired these students to become interested in taking STEM at the high school.
