These video animations were designed and produced by high school students in the Philomath High Robotics Engineering Division (PHRED) at Philomath HS in Philomath, Oregon. These two 30 second animations are from PHRED Team 847. PHRED Team 847 is sponsored by local foundations, corporations and the Lions Club.
Operation Gyre is an elegant 30 second demonstration of several EfS attributes including authentic curriculum and assessment, the entrepreneurial mindset, an understanding of the materials cycle principle and three of our enduring understandings: “A Healthy and Sustainable Future is Possible”; “Live by the Natural Laws” and “Read the Feedback”.
Pure Water 847 is another elegant 30 second demonstration of authentic curriculum and assessment, the entrepreneurial mindset, Biomimicry and “A Sustainable Future is Possible.” In addition, the animations illustrate a robust use of technology in the classroom (Autodesk 3ds Max).
