Students present innovative solutions through TEC-SMART exhibition

Student presents project at exhibitionA group of Schuylerville High School students shared their innovative solutions to real world problems during the Junior and Senior Capstone Project Exhibition on Wednesday, June 7 at the TEC-SMART facility in Malta. The students, who are enrolled in the Clean Tech Early College High School (ECHS) program, described their technology and business plans to those in attendance. Eight Schuylerville students shared their projects, which ranged from a headset designed to analyze vocal patterns and cancel out specific words, to cell phone recycling, and a product to help sustain crops through the four seasons.

The day also marked the Clean Tech ECHS graduation. Schuylerville senior Weslee Pennington graduated from the program with more than 20 college credits. The program, jointly sponsored by Hudson Valley Community College and the Ballston Spa Central School District, prepares high school students for college and careers in clean energy, computer science and information, mechatronics and entrepreneurship.
