In the Wood lab you will complete pre-engineering projects such as balsa gliders, towers, and crash safety cages. You will have a blast testing and evaluating your project. The goal is to be able understand what happened, and be able to improve upon your initial solution or idea. Wood projects are made in the shop to help you learn how to safely use power tools, follow directions, and to work as a team.

Computers also play a big part in the wood lab, allowing you to practice your ruler reading skills, engineer virtual bridges, learn about marketing, and blog the progress of your projects.
