The engineers of Don Lugo showcased their senior projects to mark the end to their year. On May 15th, these students hosted a gallery in the library to show off their work.

For the past 8 months, the LEAD (Lugo Engineering and Design) senior class has diligently worked on creating novel products from scratch. Throughout the school day, the nine teams involved publicly displayed their projects in the library. The teams also formally presented their projects to a panel composed of professionals from the engineering field.

It takes skill, and persistence, and perseverance to get the design right in finality.”

— Dr. Scott Boskovich

Professors from Cal Poly Pomona and Cal State Fullerton, along with other experts, attended the event to evaluate and provide feedback to the students. Each team took 8-15 minutes presenting their experience, from the justification of the problem to testing a prototype. Dr. Scott Boskovich expressed, “You should be proud. Your instructors, your principals, your school,” later adding, “They’ve done an amazing job to give you guys the resources to do this.”

The Engineering Design and Development (EDD) course culminates the four-year engineering program and “gives students an opportunity to exercise the skills they have developed not only in their PLTW classes, but in other classes and in their personal experiences.” In the years prior to EDD, the LEAD Academy students learn CAD Modeling, coding, programming, building design, etc. which ultimately aids them in their final year. “My junior year helped the most because I was in Digital Electronics [so learning] to breadboard a simple circuit, helped me build this more complex one,” comments Daniel Rosas whose team created a device that detects upcoming emergency vehicles and warns the driver of such.
