Honors, Awards and Special Programs
Basha High - (2018-2019) Under the direction of Sharon LaVoy, a group of Basha High juniors and seniors visited the IMR Lab at Intel, one of only three in the world, to learn more about careers in Engineering and Information Technology. The students met with engineers and technicians in areas including testing, quality control, manufacturing, shipping and receiving and 3D printing. Those interested in information technology were able to see the computer programming side of the lab where code is analyzed to determine the cause of part failures, presenting a new perspective of programming and problem solving. The group went on to tour Able Aerospace in Mesa where they met with program managers, engineers and technicians as they toured the plant, helicopter hangar and tarmac. Students were impressed with the advanced robotic cold spray area, the soundproof testing room and especially with the government and military aspect of the business.
