  3. Design & Engineering’s final update by Mr. Dan Ramage: It’s been an exciting year in Design & Engineering at WJJMS. D & E students have been learning how to bring their ideas to reality in a planful and organized manner. With each new project students brainstorm ideas, create detailed building plans, learn how to use tools to build their individualized projects, and test and evaluate their creations. No matter what the product, we use the same process that over time can turn each student into an experienced, master builder. Click here to read the entire article and see the photos.
