Summit Academy Jr Hi students recently attended GREAT (Getting Ready for Engineering and Technology) Day at Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories in Lewiston.  The day included working with engineers at SEL on developing an app, working hands-on with electrical models and touring the SEL facilities.  During the tour students were able to watch the 3-D metal printer and robotics in action, which all the students agreed was the highlight of the day. Pictured are Luke Stubbers, Cody Wassmuth, Noah Beckman and an SEL engineer discussing parallel and series circuits. Photo submitted by Summit Academy. Click on the photo for a larger view.
