St. Andrews Episcopal School Hosts Open House Introducing New Engineering Program

AMARILLO, Texas (KFDA) — St. Andrews Episcopal School will hold an open house for its new engineering and digital creativity labs today at 11 a.m.

Representatives from the school, Amarillo Middle School, and local STEM society Snapology announced a new partnership to provide innovative STEM education to elementary and middle school students.

Members of Amarillo College will serve as mentors and instructors for this program.

Under this new partnership, students in grades six through eight at St. Andrews Episcopal School will be able to start a three-year project to design tiny houses to meet the needs of homeless people in our area.

Students will design cost-effective, sustainable and energy-efficient housing for people in need.

Students will have the chance to be trained in industry standard software to design, test, and market Tiny Houses to build and fund shelters for people in need in the Panhandle area.

Additionally, students will also have the opportunity to participate in the design, construction and competitive racing of miniature Formula 1 cars.

The global competition that Formula 1 cars offer schools allows them to complete a STEM project.

More than 17,000 students from around the world take part in this competition to design, build, market and race the fastest miniature F1 cars in the world.
