Students Receive Top Scores in Manufacturing and Engineering Presentations

Students Receive Top Scores in Manufacturing and Engineering Presentations


Congratulations to the following MPCS students, who developed the top-scoring student presentations for the inaugural Advanced Manufacturing Virtual Internship.

  • Most Engaging Presentation: S. Baker, Fueling a Clean Energy Future
  • Most Creative Solution: E. Torp, Reducing Costs in SpaceX
  • Best Use of Technology: G. Terry, Design of a Hand Sanitizer Unit

Win-Tech, Inc., hosted the four-week virtual internship program, with curriculum geared to support high school juniors and seniors during a time where in-person internships throughout multiple industries were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The MPCS trio were among a dozen students from four local high schools, engaged in Zoom program days focused on topics such as engineering design, supply chain challenges, marketing, accounting, networking, and leadership. Students participated in exercises and discussions and heard from many subject matter experts from around the world.

“The incredible value of the program lay in the connections students made to manufacturing and engineering professionals from the United Kingdom and all over the United States,” says Allison Giddens, the founder of the program.

Students were asked to present on a manufacturing or engineering topic, or to incorporate a concept they learned from the program, into solving a problem or exploring a potential solution to meet the challenge. Teachers, administrators, parents, and judges were invited to call in and engage during the presentation, asking students follow-up questions and observing well-thought out analyses.

Industry professionals were inspired by the students’ presentations. Raam Shanker, Engineer and Founder of Equitus Engineering, said, “If anybody ever had any doubts about the future of the engineering and manufacturing sector, time to dispel these doubts, for the initiative, willingness, and ability shown by these youngsters leaves me with a lot more confidence about the future.”
