Congratulations Engineering Students!

Engineering student winners

On January 26th, some of our Engineering students participated in the American Water Works Association Region 6 HIGH SCHOOL Water Tower Competition held in Boca Raton.

Team "Water Tower Power", Lily Tomek and Andrea Stampone, rose to the challenge with their superhero-themed water tower and took 1st Place!  The water tower was tested for hydraulic efficiency, structural efficiency, cost efficiency, and design aesthetics and craftsmanship. These girls, who are also in the Gear Girls club here at Westglades, are a great example of girl power.  In addition, Westglades had other notable Engineering teams:

Best Theme: Team Elevate (Caden Rounds, Josh Donatien, and Kyle Jeter)

Best Use of Recycled Materials: Team Donut Give Up (Adrianna Grant and Michele Hirn)

Judges Choice: Team Innovator: (Andrew Klein, Rafael Frias, and Henry Maruna)
