In March, Beaufort High School students attended the 2014 State Engineering Competition for Project Lead The Way high schools, held at the University of South Carolina College of Engineering and Computing in Columbia. The introduction to engineering team performed reverse engineering to provide needed documentation to manufacture a toy train. The principles of engineering team designed, built and tested a vehicle to transport a specific cargo over a given distance. Both teams were challenged to adhere to the engineering design process, and to present their product to the USC judges. Sixty South Carolina high schools participated in the all-day event this year. This is the fifth year that the school has entered teams in this event. They were champions in 2011 and 2012.
