Speaker Series: North American Young Generation in Nuclear & First Energy present at MHS

 

North American Young Generation in Nuclear & First Energy has presented every other year at Madison High School. This opportunity was for any student interested in engineering, manufacturing, and/or design as a career. Students learn much about nucliear engineering as a career, how to prepare, and some interesting projects that nuclear engineers work on. The engineers are always excited to share their profession and their work and school experiences.  Students were excited to try a Geiger Counter and search for Uranium, try to put on and take of a HazMat suit, and view fake Uranium pellets.

We also had a presentation by Lakeland Community College to learn about a post secondary program in Nuclear Engineering Technology.  If students would like to be in the nuclear industry and work with Nuclear Engineers, they may like to consider this career.

The engineers recommend that students have skills with math, physics, pencil & paper sketches, and AutoDesk Inventor or SolidWorks. The students have also shown excitement as they engage in the conversation or their quality of questions. The following people have presented from NAYGN or Lakeland:
 
  • Lee Robinson - First Energy & NAYGN – May 21st of 2013 & November 29th or 2013
  • Hiram Reppert - Lakeland Community College– April 22nd of 2013
 


This company donates time to our students to help them create 3D prints of innovative products and inventions from AutoDesk Inventor.  Students take a tour of their facilities every 2 to 3 years.  Astro sponsors another school's RoboBot teams so they are also one of our Science/Technology Club's RoboBot competitors with AWT.  Take a virtual tour of their facilities by clicking on the above link or click on this link to watch Mentor High School's documentary of AMD.

Students interested in manufacturing, engineering, and/or design as a career were invited to a yearly field trip to Astro Model Development Corporation in Eastlake, Ohio.  The company works with international clients in industries such as military, medical, automobile, etc.  They help their clients' needs from designing to prototyping to the manufacturing process of a product.

Students met with designers using Pro/E software and engineers and manufacturer using machining, fabricating, plastics, rapid prototyping, painting, assembly, cable assemblies & wire harnesses, and inspection techiques.  Students saw developmental processes of missiles, torpedos, CAT Scans, etc.  Students were able to experience realistic computer simulated surgery.  One student, Mike Hrutkay, punctured a gall bladder - nice try. :-)  He said the pulling and pushing of the surgical tools felt real.

Students enjoyed the polished presentation of Rich Peterson and his colleagues of Astro Mfg.  Mr. Peterson stated that over 20,000 jobs will be available in manufacturing within the next few years in Northeast Ohio as some of the workforce enters into retirement.  Students are encouraged to continue taking Industrial Technology classes at Madison High School.
 

 
The Cleveland Chapter of the American Institute of Architects has presented every other year at Madison High School. This opportunity was for any student interested in engineering, architecture, and/or design as a career. Students learn much about architecture as a career, how to prepare, and some interesting projects that architects work on. The architects are always excited to share their profession and their work and school experiences. The architects recommend that students have skills with pencil & paper sketches, AutoDesk Revit (PC) or Vector Works (Apple), and Google Sketchup. The students have also shown excitement as they engage in the conversation or their quality of questions. The following people have presented from AIA:
