Engineering Club: Drone Flight
Despite the cold and windy conditions, SHS Engineering Club was able to flight test their UAV drone. Much was learned about the computer flight systems and several students practiced manually flying the drone. Here is a still frame from some of the video they took. It shows the High School at dusk in the foreground looking south towards Culvers and Farm & Fleet.
Forty-five high school and forty middle school students from the Sycamore School District were recently selected to participate in the 2014 Illinois Music Educators Association (ILMEA) All-District Orchestras, Bands, Jazz Bands, and Choirs.

3M Grant for Engineering Club
Engineering Club would like to thank 3M Corporation for their generous grant. This is engineering club's first grant which will be used to fund a UAV Drone Project at Sycamore coverage of sports, practices, and other school events. Going forth with this grant, the engineering club hopes to see students becoming more involved with the community and local businesses with new knowledge of engineering. This drone will be seen at the high school and hopefully assisting around the community by late 2014. While this is the first grant of many, engineering club hopes to raise more money to further their knowledge of engineering and technology. The club, again, extends their deepest gratitude to 3M for their support.
