Honors Options - Trimester 2

Engineering and Technology

Option 1: Solar Hot Water Heater
Students who earned honors credit for Trimester 1 (Solar water heater) may continue working on their Trimester 1 honors project. They will develop the prototype into a final working model.

Option 2: Assistive Technology
About 50 million Americans are disabled. Students will work in groups to create a device to aid someone with a disability. With teacher assistance, students will identify a client and determine how they can use technology to meet a need that their client has. Students will develop a solution and present a final product to their client.

Option 3: Other approved project
Students may elect to work on another teacher approved project.

Weekly Requirements:

  • Students must attend a weekly meeting held in the cafeteria on Tuesdays at the beginning of lunch. This working lunch will be used to make sure that groups are making progress.
  • Each group must meet together at least weekly to continue to work on their project. These weekly meetings should be about an hour long. Students are not required to meet at school, but if students need teacher help or classroom supplies, the following times are generally available
    • Tuesdays 3:00-5:45
    • Wednesdays 3:00-4:15
    • Fridays 3:00-4:15
      • Please make sure you check in with the teacher in advance.
  • If at any time a group stops making progress or an individual is not contributing, they may lose the opportunity to earn honors credit.

Other Requirements:

  • Students are required to present their work as a part of Exhibition night. That can fulfill their requirement for submission, or be in addition to other projects.
