Lowell High School Receives $2,000 STEM Grant

In February, Jay Kanavos, chairman, Science Teaching Tools Committee, presented a $2,000 science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) grant to Brian Martin, headmaster of Lowell High School, and Bill Jumper, physics teacher. For the past 10 years, the chapter has been supplementing AFCEA International grants with chapter grants to local high schools to foster student interest in math and sciences. This year, Lowell High School received the second of two, $2,000 chapter grants to purchase a 3-D trajectory data collection and visualization system to evaluate flight characteristics of balsa wood gliders designed by students. By using the flight data output from the 3-D system, students can revise and improve their glider designs. This system will aid the students understanding of 3-D geometry and flight principles through hands-on measurement and modeling activities. This system will be used to support the studentsí capstone Physics project and will support 25-50 students.
