SOCES Engineering Middle School and High School Teams Take First Place in Aerospace Competition!


 

SOCES MS and HS Engineering Teams celebrate their victory at the 40th Annual Aerospace Robert H. Herndon Science and Engineering Competition.

 

Engineering students SOCES in both middle and high school placed first in the experimental portion of Aerospace Corp.’s 40th Annual Robert H. Herndon Science Competition.

The contest, held May 26th in El Segundo on the Aerospace campus, drew schools from across Los Angeles County, with students competing in the essay and experimental categories.

The middle school team’s research was titled, “The Hanging Alarm Clock” They identified a problem in which their peers have difficulties in waking up in the morning. The team engineered a solution by building a hanging alarm clock with an ultrasonic sensor that triggers a motor that raises the clock away from the sleeper when they try and reach for it. This forces the sleeper to get up out of bed to try to turn it off.

The high school team’s project was “The Future of Automation – Object Detection Algorithms”. They developed a computer program that utilizes a camera to recognize object shapes that can then be picked up by a robotic arm. They also wrote computer code in which the camera will recognize the skin tone of a worker and pause the automation process thereby making it safer for humans to work collaboratively with robotic systems.

The students worked many hours after school on these projects with the help of other mentors from industry.

SOCES students who are interested and willing to make a commitment to working on projects such as these should see Ms. Yamagata (Room 104) or Mr. Hicks (Room 106).

SOCES Engineering Team Wins at State Championship and will advance to Nationals!


Shannon Lamb
is the California State Champion!

 

The SOCES Engineering Team traveled to San Diego for the SkillsUSA State Championships at the Town & Country Resort, San Diego, CA on April 20-23, 2017. SkillsUSA is an organization for students enrolled in a Career Technical Education pathway course (i.e. SOCES MS and HS Engineering courses). Students have an opportunity to compete in both Leadership and Technical type competitions. SOCES students were competing in a variety of competitions including the following:

:

Principles of Engineering Technology
Shannon Lamb, Smit Rajyaguru, Adam Murtagh, Ariful Rigan, Quinn Ward

Related Technical Math
Ramon Roco

Big Ticket Raffle


Check out this great video featuring our very own SOCES students, telling you all about PTSA’s biggest fundraiser of the year: the BIG TICKET Raffle. All the information you need to buy or sell the winning ticket should have come home with your student this week.
Selling is easy and every dollar raised comes back to help SOCES programs.
Each ticket costs only $5, for a chance to win over $5000 in great prizes. Selling “BIG” tickets will give students the chance to earn “little” tickets which can then can be used for our super cool “for students” raffle baskets, AND other great prizes such as iTunes gift cards, and an invitation to our to our pizza and ice cream party.
