HAST High School Students Doing Research at CIVS

Eleven high school seniors from the Hammond Academy of Science and Technology (HAST) are gaining unique learning experiences through weekly classes at CIVS. The students are taking part in the national “Project Lead the Way” program.  At CIVS, students work on projects using cutting edge technologies to address complex issues in engineering and other fields.

Students are learning fundamental problem-solving and critical-thinking skills through projects involving 3D Printing, a Virtual Power Plant Boiler, Wind Energy, and a Virtual City of Hammond.
