This year’s Engineering & Technology Day will be on Friday February 9th, 2018 at San Joaquin Delta College.  The event will start at 8:30 am with registration. The drafting competitions will start at 9:00 am and finished at noon.  Teams of students will compete in a “Maze Machine” design project where a golf ball will travel a planned course, incorporating as many different lift mechanisms as possible, and return the ball to the starting point. Teams will be judged on total distance traveled, maximum change in vertical distance, and the number of different lifting mechanisms that operate successfully. Additionally, there will be a robotic vehicle competition requiring teams to program a robot to follow a designed path and avoid obstacles. A career orientation and award ceremony will start at 2:15pm.

Approximately 100 high school students from Calaveras High School, Cesar Chavez High School, Lincoln High School, Lodi High School, Merlo Institute of Environmental Technology, and Weber Institute of Applied Science & Technology are expected to compete in the events.

Of the events held, five will be technical and one practical:

  • Beginning (9-10 grade) AutoCAD/Inventor drafting & design competition.
  • Advanced (11-12 grade) AutoCAD/Inventor drafting & design competition.
  • Beginning Architectural/Civil (hand) drafting & design competition.
  • Advanced Architectural/Civil drafting & design competition.
  • Maze Design Competition.

Every computer will be in use for the CAD competitions and a good number of drafting tables will be used for the hand drafting competition.

Following the competitions a Career Orientation with a panel discussion and an award ceremony will be held in the Tillie Lewis Theater. Plaques were given for 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th place for every category.  A total of 24 plaques will be awarded.

SJEC wishes to thank all of the volunteers and supporters helping to make this event a successful.
