Elementary Students Day 2!!

Twenty-six fourth and fifth grade students visited ARGS on Wednesday!  Once again, the seniors from the Senior Design class did a fabulous job, improving upon the process from Monday.  


This has been a great learning experience for the seniors in project management and planning, and a wonderful experience for our local elementary school students!

Tech Seniors Host Elementary Students!!

The Senior Design class hosted the first of two groups of fourth and fifth graders from local elementary schools on Monday.

The seniors came up with a great assembly line activity and the students got to tour the ARGS Technology department!


The 4th and 5th graders played with the arcade machine that Industrial Design built, learned how to make a popsicle stick bomb (Thanks, Lauren!), talked to freshman Tech majors about their designs for the massive marble run they are building, and got to dig around one of the augmented reality sandboxes that Advanced Engineering students are building!
