This year, the GATE students were asked to create and design their own museum. This museum, they were told, would be built in West Covina, and the students needed to abide by certain criteria (total square footage of the museum, number of rooms, etc). The students were asked to calculate and come up with dimensions of each exhibit so that the total area of the museum would not exceed 13,000 square feet. In addition, they were asked to come up with their own exhibit that would be unique to West Covina. Students needed to rely on all content areas of school in addition to technology.
This year’s participants are: Samantha Saucedo and Matthew Pineda
Ysabel Sarinas, Jessica Doan,and Amrita Kaur – 1st place
