Criminal Justice Competition

posted Feb 15, 2018, 6:26 AM by Margaret Best

This past weekend students from Bridging Communities' criminal justice program participated in the 43rd annual BSA Winterfest in Gatlinburg, TN.
The eight students that participated are members of the school's Law Enforcement Explorer Post 602, which is an extracurricular program designed for teens interested in a law enforcement career.
Students competed in several competitions: Bomb Threat Response, Crash Investigation, Employment Interview, Felony Traffic Stop, Officer Survival, Unknown Risk Call, and the Written Law Enforcement Employment Exam.
Each student did their best at the event, and Hudson White ranked fourth in Officer Survival. Great job!

Small Engine Project

Small Engine exercise yesterday used precision measuring, math formulas, geometric shapes (volume), and scientific instruments
students used precision measuring tools to measure engine bore and stroke.
Then used these measurements to calculate engine size (displacement).
From there, they used the burette to measure internal engine volume, and then used that value (with the engine displacement) to calculate the mechanical compression ratio of the engine.
