Here’s a few different extra-curricular opportunities I want to push out to everyone if you’re interested in diving deeper into certain realms of design/engineering/etc: Leadership + Design: This weeklong summer program is a great opportunity to dive deep into design thinking. ACE: This after school program provides authentic opportunities to learn about a career in design and [...]
Students are working on their final project of the year – automata.
Tools/equipment they are incorporating include 3D printer, littlebits, makey makey, scribe circuit, laser cutter, and our new CNC router.
SUSTAINABLE ENGINEERING & DESIGN
For their culminating project, students have been challenged to develop a positive impact project that addresses energy.
Projects include the following: drones for good, cellphone projector, IHS energy audit, fuel cells, music concert footprint, coffee cups, TEDxInglemoor, school design, 3D printed prosthetics, and energy STEM kits.
It’s time to celebrate! You are cordially invited to a special evening showcasing the work of our next generation of innovators. The event will include a brief year in review of Inglemoor’s Design, Engineering, and Architecture program followed by the SED students sharing their capstone projects. As a special bonus, a few select projects from [...]
It started with two…I’m excited to announce that Inglemoor has it’s first cohort of the new IB Career Program graduating this spring. Over the past two years working with these two, they’ve been instrumental in the following: Design of 12th man skittle First iteration of the hopper project Taking ownership of REM/Rate software Keeping our [...]
It may just be coincidence, but likely not. I killed one of our class goldfish. We had five. Now there are four. Was it out of rage? Vengeance? Jealousy? No to all. It’s fate was due to the same thing that kills many well conceived classroom lessons/projects/etc. Poor instructions. I had directed my TA to [...]
I’ve been waiting for the official press release to send the message out through the interweb. I have been selected as one of 7 educators from across the pacific rim/west coast to be part of the first cohort of the Paul Allen Foundation Distinguished Educator program! Brief Background Paul Allen would like to see more students [...]
In a nutshell, this long, long post is my soapbox on how to give our students the tools, knowledge, and creative confidence to be the authors of the next sustainable transportation revolution. Without question, it will require rethinking how we teach math! Winter break can be a great opportunity to really take a step back [...]
I have four students who went full throttle on their capstone project to submit an entry to the High School of the Future competition. Philip Riedel (NAC Architecture) was kind enough to be their mentor. He and I did what we could to keep up with the group! Check out the video to learn all [...]
Alex wakes at the crack of dawn, without the aid of coffee, and creates behavior-driven products and interactions as the Creative Director of Pensar Development. He has experience designing for clients that range from Fortune 500 companies to bootstrapping startups. Illumagear, Sonosite Ultrasound, Gunnar Optics, Fluke, and Cardiac Science have all benefited from his keen design eye and attention to detail. He graduated from Western Washington University Industrial Design and attended Danmarks Designskole in Copenhagen.
Lauren manages the implementation of regional resource conservation programs for K-12 school districts and commercial offices that focus on both operations and occupant engagement. Her work with our students provides them with industry relevant and engaging experiences in the built environment.
Mark leads a team of energy efficiency engineers that help businesses find ways to save energy at their facilities. He also manages the commercial new construction energy efficiency program, where business and building owners, engineers, architects, and contractors leverage the program to financially support the inclusion of energy efficiency upgrades in new buildings.
Sean is a co-founder of Igor Institute, a Seattle-based product development consultancy, where he works as a mechanical engineer (most of the time). In his day-to-day work, he helps startups (and some big companies) navigate the early stages of product development, providing a mechanical perspective on technical feasibility, product architecture, proof-of-concept testing, and prototype development.
IB Career Program
Inglemoor High School recently added the new IB Career Program. To earn an IBCP certificate, students take a series of two career/college focused courses and a few other requirements. The first track offered at the school is “engineering & design,” requiring students to take IB Design Technology their junior year and then Sustainable Engineering & Design their senior year for their career pathway.
