UL Summer Program for Students
Congratulations to our Support Personnel of the Year, Mrs. Kim
BEAU CHENE HIGH SCHOOL
Wednesday's Cool School is Beau Chene High School!
The drafting & design technology program has worked with NASA for the past eight years on projects relating to the International Space Station!
Students travel to government facilities for final presentations of their assigned task packages. Sites include Johnson Space Center, Marshall Space Flight Center, John C. Stennis Space Center, the Infinity Center, and the Naval Aviation Museum, Pensacola, Florida.
In addition, students have presented at NASA Day at the Louisiana State Capital, 2014, UL Engineering & Technology Day 2012, the St. Landry Parish Career and Technical Education Tailgate, and St. Landry Parish school board meetings. Most recently, presentations were made alongside BASF, LSU Chevron Leadership Academy and American Society of Civil Engineers at the Louisiana Art & Science Museum's Engineering Day 2018 in Baton Rouge.
This year, the NASA Hunch Design Presentation team traveled to the Michaud Advanced Manufacturing Facility, New Orleans. Students presented a video of the 2017-18 project year, including an explanation of the project and completed tasks. Taken on a private tour of the facility, students observed the manufacturing of parts for future space endeavors. The highlight of the trip was the opportunity to sign a part, manufactured from student drawings, which will eventually become a locker and be sent to the ISS within the next few years!
BCHS 4-H Club members collected Can Tabs and Bottle Caps to donate to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital for kids like Annalisse, who is Cancer Free. Annalisse visited the school on May 2, 2018, to collect the Can Tabs and Bottle Caps.
