Cedar Point 2017

2017 marked the fourth year that YTA participated in Cedar Point’s Physics, Science and Math week.  Over 80 students from various Cleveland schools attended the competitions that were held May 15 through May 18 at the park in Sandusky, OH. The competitions were created to best reflect the engineering principles that were covered in the courses taught by YTA in their home schools. Students from our Unmanned Aerial Vehicle course participated in the GPS navigation system after completing a flying competition held at Tri-C the week prior. Students were required to map out a “flight plan” using various GPS way points located around the park to achieve the fastest route. Select students who were enrolled in YTA’s Basic Robotics course were also invited to bring the robots they built and programmed in class to participate in a timed maze competition at the park. YTA is thankful to Cedar Point for inviting us to participate in such a fun and important event!
