Attention Allegan area high school students:
Health Occupations Students of America State Competition
CADD ROV Competition Awards
While most students were sleeping Saturday, March 28th, a few students from the CADD class woke early and met at ACATEC and departed at 6:15 AM. They arrived at Mott High School for the Underwater IVD Performance Challenge, the Fantastic Voyage, they quickly setup in the staging area. Once the setup was completed they went from one challenge to another. The challenges were Infection Detection, Raise the “All Clear” Flag, Handling Hypothermia, and a Presentation, and Drag Racing. Students arrived back at ACATEC at 9:30 PM with two major awards.
Infection Detection: Capture antibodies (floating balls) that are in one infection zone and take them underwater and release them in another infection zone.
All Clear: Recover medical devices (Rings on the bottom of pool) left-over from the mission, and signal they are ready for evacuation. Devices recovered were placed on hooks at the surface of the water. A standard ice fishing “tip up” flag would be raised by the ROV to signal they were ready for evacuation.
Handling Hypothermia: Teams must locate, detect and calculate in Celsius the temperature of water flowing from a submerged hose on the bottom of the pool.
Presentation: Students gave a 6-10 minute presentation formally explaining their design, engineering, craftsmanship and ambassadorship unique.
ACATEC 2, PM won first place in Performance and Design Innovation.
ACATEC 1, AM took second place in the drag racing event over 20 other teams.
The Computer Information Systems, Marketing & Management, and Accounting students traveled to Muskegon Dec. 16th for the Baker College Business and Technology Competition. Students competed with approximately 10 schools including 3 other tech centers. Networking, PC Troubleshooting, Accounting, Word and Excel were just some of the competitions the students participated in. Along with many individual awards, ACATEC was able to unseat the reigning school winner, Fruitport, and bring home the school plaque until next year. This was a very positive experience for all the students and generated pride not only in their programs but for the Tech Center as well.
