Pre-Engineering Students Get Hands-on Experience
The Exploring Engineering Technology (EET) class in the Hart District's Regional Occupational Program gives pre-engineering students a chance to see how engineering works through actual hands-on projects.

The students first worked on building and launching rockets in the practice field at Canyon High School. Their next project included building and racing a solar car.

The students also are learning to use the Autodesk Inventor program to draw 3-D models including proper dimensions and sketch modeling on a blueprint. They also will learn different aspects of machining using a lathe and a milling machine.

ROP Crews Repair Hiking Trails
Forestry Basics & Trail Construction students in the Hart District's Regional Occupational Program have an ambitious program of work ahead of them.

In additional to regularly scheduled work projects on local trails, the students will learn CPR/first aid, take a geology exploration trip, participate in Cal Trails Day, conduct a wildland fire exploration trip and work project, and take part in a search and rescue activity in which they will use their backcountry navigation, first aid and tactical radio communication skills.

The team recently worked on a section of the Pacific Crest Trail, moving rock to support a soon-to-be-installed switchback.
