Michael is an eighth grader who has grown immensely in his years with us at High Road. He began taking Technology Education at Snow Hill Middle School this year, learning how to build and make simple machines work. The class was given the assignment to create a project of their choice out of wood. The obstacle tentatively standing in Michael’s way, was using the heavy duty cutting machines. He had some fears about using the machine safely to complete his task, however he came up with a great idea, and he really wanted to see it through. With the support of our staff, Michael constructed a wooden Skittles machine, which works by pressing a lever to dispense the skittles into your hand. When completed, he was not only proud of his creation, but proud of his bravery in trying something new and conquering a fear! We are all proud of Michael as well.
