Everett High School students are participating in a joint program called Elevating Agriculture Technology (EAT), which is offered through a partnership with the Boston Design Academy (BDA). The intensive, 9-week paid internship program runs from July 6th to September 3rd, Mondays through Thursdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Students are designing 3-D objects using Fusion 360/TinkerCad; exploring circuits using Arduino kits; and coding with Sphero-programming. This year's topic centers around agriculture and gardening, as students learn how they might garden food-based plants in their homes/apartments, and then propose solutions to address ways to make gardening easier or address a problem that they might have faced. They will have field trips and guest speakers from tech companies Boston Dynamic and Nasa. EHS teacher Courtland Ferreria-Douglas is leading the program, with the assistance of Yale student and EHS Class of ‘20 graduate Ahmed Alananzeh.
