These Roberts High School students got an early Christmas present from Intel and the Portland Trail Blazers, a chance to display their engineering talent from center court of the Rose Garden Arena in front of more than 20,000 screaming fans during half time of a Trail Blazer's game.
Intel Oregon Corporate Affairs has stated that Intel wants more students to study math, science and engineering. The engineering challenge was one way to show students that engineering can be both fascinating and fun.
Intel volunteers are part of a massive school volunteerism effort by Intel Oregon employees. During the 2007-2008 school year, Intel Oregon employees invested over 60,000 hours of volunteer time in Oregon schools.
At Intel's invitation, students from Roberts High School and 8 other Oregon high schools worked hard for the past two months to design, engineer and build unique t-shirt launchers. Each Challenge team competing submitted a two-page paper encompassing 4 areas: process, theories, successes, and how they implemented teamwork. They were also asked to submit at least 3 photos, and an optional YouTube video.
Roberts' students won 1st Prize for the "Furthest T-Shirt Shot" at the event, launching at least one t-shirt 558 ft. (almost the length of two football fields) into the spectator seats. The reaction of the crowd was electric, the noise deafening.
Thank you Intel, and congratulations students on this engineering feat!
