Ramona Convent Engineering Class Creates Wooden Masterpieces

The “Engineer Your World” class at Ramona has finished constructing an amazing project that they’ve been working on for about a month — Cape Cod style lawn chairs. These chairs are similar in shape but each group picked a color to showcase their individuality. One group even customized their chair with heart shaped cup holders on the arms.

Students in this class were split into groups and built the chairs starting with just wood and some basic instructions. They cut, sanded, assembled, and painted each piece of wood until their own masterpiece was completed. The end result was six chairs to simulate the colors of the rainbow.

These engineers got hands-on experience and learned to use various power-tools while following construction instructions, and most importantly, how to work together as a team. This was a favorite project for the engineering students because they learned, created, and had fun doing it!

Ramona is a welcoming Catholic college-prep high school for girls in grades 9-12.
