Shelby County Public Schools students make a “Big Impression” in Texas as they walked across the stage three times during the International Technology Student Association Awards Ceremony.  In the first elimination round, Doug and Ethan were faced with debating each other on the topic of Human Robots. The top 12 debate teams went on to debate Fuel Supplies from crops in front of a new set of judges. Not only did they team up to win second in challenging technology issues, they teamed up in Problem Solving and placed sixth. They were given a limited amount of supplies and were challenged to construct a cantilever. The goal was to construct a cantilever that would hold the most weight and be the most efficient. After judges spent hours of testing structures, Doug and Ethan’s design proved to be sixth among more than 50 other teams.
