Computer-Aided Design & Manufacturing students enrolled in the College Tech Prep Initiative at Roosevelt High School placed in the Top 10 at the 17th Annual Student Model Home Design Contest.
This was the first year CADM students in the Six District Educational Compact competed in the contest, which was hosted at Cuyahoga Valley Career Center in Brecksville. According to teacher Jeff Bee, the competition was the culmination of a new architectural unit. Students were challenged to create a residence using the theme of "The Great Influential Architect Designed House."
Using their knowledge of architectural design, green building design technology, and concrete construction, student entries included floor plan and elevation drawings as well as high profile, scaled model building. They were judged in 15 categories, including design, planning and innovations, energy-conserving features, drawing presentation, model presentation, and exterior design.
Placing sixth were Fred Prillaman, Cuyahoga Falls, Jacob Earls, Hudson, and Shane Moodie, Roosevelt.
Winner of best CAD drawings and placing eighth was a team made up of Carl Jessup and Brennan Poder, both of Cuyahoga Falls. A team made up of Kory Senderling and Andrei Christoff, both of Roosevelt, placed ninth
Student projects were displayed at the Great Big Home & Garden Show at the IX-Center in February. In addition, students will receive their awards during a ceremony on the main stage.
