Morningside PLTW Students Enjoy Guest Speaker from Floyd Brace and Design Challenge

Students in Mr. Glickman’s Project Lead The Way Gateway to Technology class at Morningside Middle School enjoyed a recent guest speaking visit from Mr. Maurice Johnson with Floyd Brace.

The students got to participate in a special activity called “Mr. Glickman’s PLTW Foot Orthosis Design Challenge” and were encouraged to share their designs as they explored the design process.

Mr. Johnson brought in various types of Foot Orthotics which gave students the opportunity to compare their prototypes.

“We’re so thankful for Mr. Johnson’s investment of time with our students – It was a terrific project-based learning experience for the students” said Mr. Glickman.

Thanks to everyone that made this opportunity possible for Morningside Middle School students!
