S-C Students Visit UCM for Building Design Presentations
Smith-Cotton High School Project Lead the Way students took a field trip Tuesday, April 4, to the University of Central Missouri in Warrensburg for the American Institute of Building Design's Design and Build Day.
PLTW teacher Rush Walters' students sat in on presentations by residential designers. Walters said one student was so impressed that "he is changing what he wants to do as a career because of the presentations.
" Project Lead the Way is a STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) centered educational model that focuses on problem solving, critical and creative thinking, collaboration, and communication.
