Project Lead the Way Advanced Design and Robotics

Advanced Design and Robotics (ADR) students have been completing their end of quarter presentations. The class is a project based student driven class with a career component. At the end of the first quarter, students were tasked with creating a presentation which accomplished multiple tasks. As the main focus of the class is projects, students' first quarter presentations were required to review and demonstrate all of their work from this quarter. In addition, students were required to declare their direction for next quarter (continue, expand, or change) regarding their project focus.

One Day Job Shadowing Experiences

Students in Experiential Learning had the opportunity to job shadow construction trades and management positions at the new site of the Warren County Jail. WHS partnered with Granger Construction to create this opportunity for students.
