IBM Visited with Meadow Hill Middle School Students to Work on the


On February 15th IBM visited with our middle school students to work on the "e-week challenge."  Students, with the guidance from IBM, were to make robotic arms that could pick up objects and move them from two feet away.  The students had to formulate ideas, determine the most cost effective product, make prototypes, test their designs and re-calibrate as needed.  The students had 30 seconds to move the most number of items as possible once they were finished with their designs.  Our MHS students were able to see first hand the type of work Engineers at IBM do and the many steps it takes to make a finished product. 

One of IBM's representatives was our very own Newburgh graduate Dennis Jhammat. Dennis attended Meadow Hill School and is a recent graduate of the P-Tech program at NFA-North.  The P-Tech program works directly with IBM to allow students an opportunity to earn a two year degree along with their high school diploma.  It is always a special treat to have a Newburgh graduate working with our current scholars!
