    West High’s PLTW at Work Again

     

    whs-door-piece-120916-261x300Bob Fahrenkrog, a district carpenter, grew weary of repeatedly changing the corroded removable mullion bases on school entry doors, so he took a new mullion base to the students in West High’s Project Lead the Way (PLTW) class to see if they could help think of a solution to his problem. Students reverse-engineered a solution for Bob by precisely measuring the metal replacement piece, creating a 3D-drawing of it in CAD, and using their 3D-printer to create their version of a replacement base (pictured) in a non-corroding plastic. The success of this project is a win-win for everyone involved. The new pieces should last longer and save district resources, and West’s PLTW students put their skills and knowledge to work to solve a real-world problem.
