J.E.T.S. (Junior Engineering Technological Society)

Are you that kid that enjoys those 50 minutes of calculus?  If so, the J.E.T.S., or Junior Engineering Technological Society, may be the perfect fit for you.

Casey O’Hara and his band of engineers meet every Monday at lunch in A-11.

“You plan and work towards a competition at the end of the year where you have to solve real life engineering problems,” explained Pasha Minkovsky, a current member of the club.

This end of the year exam is taken by juniors across United States who are interested in Medical Engineering. Although the test is for juniors, joining the club before your junior year is not discouraged.

Besides planning for the exam, the club is a good way to learn some other important skills.

During class, O’Hara explains vital engineering tactics and skills that can be used in a variety of occupations and situations in life.

Outside of school, “We travel to ‘Habitats for Humanity’ in San Francisco and build houses for the less fortunate,” explained Minkovsky of their field trips.

So if you are looking for a place to help you on your track to becoming an engineer or if you are into math and science, and want a place to chill with others of your kind, then Mr. O’Hara’s
engineering club might be just the place you are looking for.
