High School TSA Students Introduce 4th Graders to Engineering

Penn Manor  High School TSA (Technology Student Association) members and high school technology education teacher Sean McKnight have been working with Martic Elementary 4th grade students to take engineering to a whole new level. The high school students are hoping to create interest in engineering at a younger age. The high school group plans to visit all 4th grade classes in the district. Each elementary school will identify a different issue so each program will be different.  Martic Elementary identified a problem – wells drying up – and the high school students assisted the 4th grade students come up with a design for rainwater harvesting.  The students work from the design process to the construction of the device to testing.
