Campbell High School’s Engineering Application class partnered with Barnes & Noble to develop, program, and test the students newly developed technology products. The students spent class time examining various new STEM and technology based products from various suppliers. Barnes & Noble near the Cumberland Mall invited the community, including parents and children, to test out the products. Our Campbell High Engineer students were asked to spearhead the event and they embraced the opportunity.

The partnership with Maker Faire and Barnes & Noble enabled the students’ to work diligently in class on the products and present them in the community. The students engaged  with business leaders that assisted them in developing their networking skills and gave them an opportunity to discuss their passion for engineering.

This event helped the students and supervisors make great contacts with the community and its business leaders. We hope to bring these contacts into our Campbell community and help other students at Campbell High School connect with the business community.

This program is made to assist in preparing and developing Campbell High School students’ future as highly recruited and qualified engineers. There were many parents, children, and business leaders that witnessed the success of the products presented by the students.

The Campbell staff and community wants to congratulate and thank the young men and women who participated in this event!
