More PLTW Success

At the end of every Project Lead the Way course, students take an exam scored out of 9 stanine points. In order to receive credit from St. Cloud State University, students must score 4 or higher on the end-of-course test. That score must be a 7 or higher to receive credit from the Milwaukee School of Engineering. In the first year that Computer Science was offered at Belleville High School, Mr. Farrar's students averaged 7.5 on the test, and every student in the class earned a score of 4 or higher and will receive college credit. Five students earned the top score of 9 on this test. Congratulations to Mr. Farrar and his students for reaching such a high rate of achievement!

Belleville Team Places 2nd in State!

The Belleville High School team of Dylan Gratz, Nate Mabis, and Jared Schulting placed 2nd in the state of Wisconsin at a May 30th Engineering Design Competition banquet on the campus of the Milwaukee School of Engineering. Gratz, Mabis, and Schulting created a multi-sport target prototype as part of Mr. Neumann's Engineering Design and Development course. They submitted their work through Project Lead the Way's Innovation Portal.

Only five teams statewide were invited to the Engineering Design Competition banquet after projects were judged by a panel of experts. The Belleville team topped entries from Saint Thomas More (student population of 523) and Hartland Arrowhead (student population of 2,217). Medford (student population of 668) took the top prize.

Dylan, Nate, and Jared will share a $2,000 scholarship from Project Lead the Way to a college or university of their choice. This all comes in the first year that BHS has offered the Engineering Design and Development course. 

Trades Construction Site Visits

Mr. Neumann's Advanced Trades and Introduction to Trades classes toured the Findorff construction site at the new and remodeled elementary school on May 21 and May 30. Students learned about careers in the trades as well as design and construction applications while on site.  Thank you to Ben and Marlo from Findorff for hosting our Belleville High School students!
