SAS Students Attend 16th Annual "Women in Engineering" Event at Lockheed Martin

On Friday, October 28, 2016, two students from Syracuse Academy of Science's High School attended the Women in Engineering Day presented by Lockheed Martin. Ninth graders, Justine Bell and Priscilla Jones-Johnson were selected to attend the 16th Annual event at the site in Liverpool. The program included a morning engineering challenge which asked teams of students to design an apparatus that would move a ping pong ball down an inclined piece of cardboard at the slowest speed. The SAS students, working in a team with the students attending from Fayetteville-Manlius, won the contest with a time of 8 seconds, a full 3/4 of a second longer than the second place team! After the challenge, students got the chance to meet with engineers from Lockheed Martin that work in various fields from mechanical and electrical engineering to ceramic and software engineering, including having lunch with several of these women engineers. After lunch, the students were given a tour of parts of the facility and attended a career fair with hands on demonstrations of various forms of engineering so they could try their hand at becoming an engineer for part of the day. Many thanks to Lockheed Martin for putting on a great day at their facility and great job to our students on their engineering contest win!

On Saturday, October 15th, 2016, Syracuse Academy of Science Charter School took first place in the senior division of the second annual CNY Steamboat Challenge, which was held at the Milton J. Rubenstein Museum of Science & Technology. 

A total of 54 students comprising 35 teams participated in the design, build, and compete STEM event. Students built a boat out of recycled materials, including a metal engine that produces stem to propel the boat when heated by a tea light candle. Teams of between one and four students in grades four through 12 raced their boats on 3 inches of water inside 10-foot-long inflatable tracks. 

The student STEM competition was divided into two levels: junior for students in grades four through eight and senior for students in grades nine through 12. 

Winners received a medal and the winners' schools received a plaque. 

After the final heats, the top teams in each level raced against each other to see who would take home the Admiral's Trophy. The winner was the senior team of Yovanis Garcia and Lalita Dahal, from the Syracuse Academy of Science. 

CNY Steamboat Challenge is organized by the Central New York Chapter of the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) and sponsored by the MOST and OBG.
