8th Graders Construct Residential Structures

On Thursday February 5th, John Bannister-Marx’s eighth grade engineering class worked on constructing miniature residential homes. The students designed a bird’s eye view of the interior of the one floor home any way they liked, but they had to scale sizes down to being able to fit on a one 1×1’ piece of cardboard.

Engineering Class Makes Scoreboard

On Wednesday March 26, 2014, John Bannister Marx and Dave Veling’s high school engineering class wired together an electrical charge scoreboard. Students in the class were given an assignment to connect pieces to create a scoreboard which will light up when it is all connected correctly. Students had to learn how to read and write Binary Code Sequences that show what light circuit turns on and what like circuit is off.

Trying to connect the pieces to a puzzle, partners Tim Grimes and Veronica Attridge work together, holding the pieces down steadily while the one of them connects more snaps. There are snaps that have only one on them and others that go up to having seven snaps on them. All snaps were needed during the process of creating this board.

In a finished scoreboard, everything is connected to something. In order to make the lights turn on. The on/off switch is the open/closed circuit. It is the one thing that determines whether the charge will go through and start up the board’s lights. Credit:  Jenny Beardsley for Manchester Essex Multimedia Online
