LINDEN – Students in the CAD/CAM program at Linden High School are working on an independent design project. They must come up with a design problem, outline the criteria that need to be fulfilled in order to solve it, do independent research to better understand the problem and to generate different design solutions, then make a functional prototype or model of their chosen solution. Lastly, students must evaluate not only their design solution, but also their process.
Pictured is Jorge Delgado. His project is to design a recycling container for children that makes recycling fun. To that extent, his design is a dinosaur – so by recycling students can “feed the recyclosaurus.” This will help cement good habits early in life so students would be more apt to recycle later on.

CAD/CAM student Ryan Bertani works on his project – a portable entertainment center/toy that caregivers can attach to a shopping cart, allowing a small child or infant to have something to play with while they are shopping. The idea is that if children have something to do in the store, they will be less likely to become bored or frustrated – and thus be better behaved and happier during the shopping experience.
