J.R. Arnold High School Principal, Dr. John Haley, is proud to announce that students in the Project Lead the Way course, Principles of Engineering, took 2nd place in the Urban-mini Challenge, an autonomous robotics competition at Eglin Air Force Base.
The students competed against 11 other teams and qualified for the national competition in Beavertown, Ohio to be held later this month. The team also received the "Best of Show" Award for the best design and was one of only two teams to successfully complete the course.
Students in the Project Lead the Way Program take three introductory courses in principles and practices of engineering before taking a specialization course in Aerospace, Civil and Architectural, Biotechnical and/or Computer Manufacturing engineering. Students will complete the program with a capstone course in which they will design and produce a project from start to finish.
