Engineering student visits Canajoharie Middle
Canajoharie Middle School technology students
recently had the opportunity to work with a Clarkson University
engineering student on a class project.
Sixth graders in Dr. Greg Pitonza’s technology
classes are currently working on an engineering design project based
on Newton's Third Law and impact forces.
Just before Thanksgiving
as they were in the research phase of their project
students received a visit from Bailey Pitonza, a 2013
Canajoharie graduate who is currently a senior civil engineering
student at Clarkson.
Students spent their class periods engaged in a
Q&A with the college senior asking for advice on their design plans.
The project will culminate with students
producing model vehicles and testing them for impact resistance.
Bailey Pitonza, a 2013 Canajoharie graduate
who is now a senior at Clarkson University, answers questions from
sixth graders about Newton's Third Law.
