Mr. Giunta's Summer (Engineering) Field Trip

In the Summer of 2016 I was honored to be chosen by Project Lead the Way to travel around the country and share their incredible engineering curriculum with other teachers. I visited Thomasville Board of Education in Georgia, Florida Gulf Coast University in Fort Meyers, and the University of New Haven in Connecticut  CT (where I was able to tour Yale too). However no place stood out like the Mechanical Engineering Department at the University of Delaware in Newark. After flying into Philadelphia (it was Independence Day weekend, and the city was amazing), Dr. Jenni Buckley hosted me and a dozen other teachers for 3 nights, and I wish I had her as a professor back at Stetson University! The labs and workshops were all amazing, but more than anything the students and their work was so inspiring. I would highly recommend it to any Tritt/HTMS/Pope kids! Check out some of projects here (they aren't all car related) and some pictures of my new wish list below.
