Guadalupe Student Presentation
Guadalupe fifth graders presented their entry from the Tech Challenge 2018: Drop & Dash that was held on April 29, 2018 at the Tech Museum of Innovation. The “Team Techknowledgists” learned engineering, teamwork and innovation and used engineering design to solve a real-world problem. The students had to design and build a device that would survive a 10-foot drop and deliver supplies without using batteries. They said their failures helped them to understand the actual design process and enabled them to win an Outstanding Engineering Design Process Award at the Tech!

Following the recognitions, Superintendent Denise Clay announced that from these individuals, Cady Burstein, was chosen Union School District’s “2018 Volunteer of the Year.” We are truly grateful for all of our volunteers!
