Over the past eight months, Croy employees Taylor Payne and Andrew Romain participated in a mentorship program with seniors at Alan C. Pope High School in Cobb County, Ga. to explore the engineering design process.
During the program, both Payne and Romain attended quarterly meetings to work with the four different groups on developing their respective product ideas. They mentored the students on various stages, from initial concept to design, fabrication, and marketing. The proposed projects included a universal cup for car cup holders, hands-free arm rest, alert system for natural disasters, and tire adapter for snow or ice. The students shared their final products and experience with presentations on Monday evening, March 18, 2019.
This is the inaugural year for the initiative, which was launched and taught by Jeff Miller. Alan C. Pope High School is one of Cobb County’s prestigious award-winning public high schools, educating approximately 1,800 students each year.
