On February 22 & 23, Ms. Walczyk and Ms. Smith took 3 students from the Engineering classes and Robotics team to the Pathways2Possiblities event at the Myrtle Beach Convention Center to represent the Engineering pathway to over 7,000 middle schoolers from around the state. This event was hosted by the Bunnelle Foundation to introduce 8th graders to the multitude of career pathways available to them. Freshman Emerald Roberts, Sophomore Steven Bellevue, and Junior Kenneth Wessely demonstrated 3D modeling and printing, robotics, engineering design and construction, and civil and architectural engineering to the students as they interacted with them throughout the two day event.
