Episode 14: THS Engineering Team Student Showcase

In April 2018, four Triad High School seniors traveled with Career and Technical Education teacher Andy Brendel to Washington D.C. to compete in the SourceAmerica Design Challenge. They built a product that helps a local worker with a disability perform her job with more ease and accuracy. After designing and building their product and producing an entry video, their team was chosen as one of five finalists to present their ideas and results to a panel of professional engineers and industry leaders. They brought home second place and experiences to last a lifetime. In Episode 14, Adam sits down with the four team members to talk about this project.


Rachel Bradshaw, Kaitlyn Dempsey, Zach Winslow, and Cameron Meyer are seniors in Mr. Brendel’s Electronics 2 class and were selected to represent Triad as national finalists in the SourceAmerica Design Challenge.
