Students at The Moriah School are one of 12 winners of the 2019 Fluor Engineering Challenge United States Drawing. Working with limited materials and their imaginations, eighth graders Maya Gribetz and Carly Hartman used engineering to design a volley ball machine using only cups, tape, wooden pencils, craft sticks and paper. The entire eighth grade science class submitted to the Fluor Engineering Challenge as part of their science curriculum. The winning team won a $1,000 from Fluor for The Moriah School.
The Fluor Engineering Challenge was created to help educators meet the latest standards for science and engineering literacy. The year’s Fluor Engineering Challenge is developed by engineers from Fluor’s Southern California office as part of the global company’s annual employee competition held in celebration of Engineers Week. This competition provides students the opportunity to experience how real-life engineers design solutions, and to show students first-hand how fun engineering can be. Fluor invests in programs that inspire and prepare students to excel in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) subjects and disciplines and is committed to the development of our next generation workforce.
Congratulations to Moriah School students Maya and Carly!
