With engineering being emphasized in education, Grossmont High School in La Mesa, California, is participating in Project Lead the Way’s Engineering nationwide STEM program.

Students in Jeffrey Lee’s Engineering pathway at Grossmont High School are focusing on career and career readiness that meet industry standards including collaborative, technical, and innovative skills.

An element of this program is for students to enter competitions that allow them to showcase science, mathematics, and engineering concepts through innovative designs that relate to relevant problems in society.

Representing young women in engineering, Jessica and Jamie Medlin, twin sisters in their junior year at Grossmont High School, teamed up with fellow classmate Tanner Askey, also a junior, to make up the Grossmont Foothillers’ Engineering Team.

In their second year of a three-year engineering program, the Foothiller Engineering Team put their best foot forward.

Through a 6-step engineering design process, the Foothiller Engineering team collaborated to create a storage organizer for many uses and purposes. This included creating technical sketches of designs that meet design constraints, CAD (computer aided designs), and professional presentations to a panel of 5 engineers that are current in the field.

The top three teams at each of the California’s Regional Chevron Design Challenges advances to the state finals competition in Pleasanton, California, on Saturday, May 5th, 2018.

The Foothillers’ Engineering Team is honored to compete and represent the Grossmont High School Engineering Program in this prestigious competition.
