(W. Bloomfield Schools Press Release, March 27, 2014)

Abbott Middle School students visited Engineering Academy at West Bloomfield High School to learn more about Engineering Academy and engineering, architectural and industrial technology courses that the high school offers starting in 9th grade.

The middle school teams designed “catchers” to protect an egg at the end of its trip down from the second moderntaxfloor in the high school’s atrium.

The students were provided with Popsicle sticks, plastic straws, duct tape and plastic baggies to carry out their design. The winners of the Egg Contraption contest at WBHS were Ned Patron, 13, left, Anabelle Acluche, 13, Everest Snyder, 12, and Calum Schulz.

Also shown in a picture are Simon Perryman, 12, left, and Jonathon Dufresne, 13, firing off their homemade catapults in the hall at West Bloomfield High School.
