Advanced Design and Robotics (ADR) students have been completing their end of quarter presentations.  The class is a project based student driven class with a career component.  At the end of the first quarter, students were tasked with creating a presentation which accomplished multiple tasks.  As the main focus of the class is projects, students' first quarter presentations were required to review and demonstrate all of their work from this quarter.  In addition, students were required to declare their direction for next quarter (continue, expand, or change) regarding their project focus. 

As for the career component, all students completed several exploratory career assignments throughout the quarter which were focused on allowing students to explore the connections of their project work with potential career pathways which align with their individual interests.  In the second quarter, students will be required to develop a new project proposal in conjunction with selecting one specific career pathway to try on

By the end of this 2020-21 school year, the main goal is for all students to complete the ODE requirements for field experience and portfolio in route to one of the honors diplomas.  In addition, a secondary goal for the ADR class is that each student will complete training for and pass at least one industry recognized credential from the ODE engineering pathway.
