February Got Grit Contest Winners

Congratulations Anthony, Jonathan, Pavel, Brannoc, Madison, Tony, Josh, Isabelle, Antonio and Brianna. The 8th grade students, at Swansboro Middle School, were challenged by instructor Michelle Flint to create a working model that required the collaboration of multiple modules. The team designed the house in CAD, then developed a solar powered electrical system to run lights and a ceiling fan. Walls and landscape had to be fabricated and painted. Furniture was scaled down and 3D printed. The final project combined: Virtual Architecture, Alternative Energy, Laser Technology, Materials Processing, Environment & Ecology, and Digital Manufacturing.
