Engineering Club is new to PAHS and was started at the beginning of the 2018-2019 school year. It provides students with hands on engineering experiences. The club is managed by Mrs. Suzanne Fredericks. At after school club meetings, students work collaboratively to solve complex engineering design challenges. Members learn how to think and collaborate like engineers.

 

“Engineering club is an excellent experience.  When we do an activity in that club it is similar to a puzzle; it is both fun and competitive to try to create the most effective machine,” said junior Noah Fredericks.

 

On Friday April 12, members of the Engineering Club attended the Wilkes University Engineering competition. “The competition was a really good time. Right when we got there, they had drinks and snacks waiting for us, and the lunch was amazing. The whole event was run primarily by students, so we got to interact with them a lot which was really cool. Competing against the other teams was a lot of fun and the other teams were really nice,” said junior Jude Brennan.

 

“Ten students from the Engineering Club competed against students from eight other school districts in Northeastern and Eastern Pennsylvania for a scholarship to Wilkes University at the 2019 Wilkes University Engineering Olympics. Our team won first place in the competition and I am so very proud of them! They won a $10,000 scholarship to Wilkes University,” said Mrs. Fredericks.

 

Students who are interested in joining the Engineering Club should see Mrs. Fredericks in room 307. “I encourage all students that are interested in learning more about the engineering profession to join PAHS’s Engineering Club,” said Fredericks.
