He was 1 of 12 high school students chosen from the Pittsburgh region to help plan, organize, and participate in youth-centered events at the Warhol Museum between January and June. He’ll get to go behind the scenes at the Warhol Museum, meet and work with exhibiting artists and museum educators, and explore connections between art, social justice, and community activism. He’ll have an opportunity to create original artwork in a variety of techniques and learn about career opportunities in the arts. Most importantly, he’ll plan and present public events at the museum such as their Youth Invasion and Annual Teen Takeover all while representing Plum High School in the process.

 GEar Competition

GATE students won the GEaR competition which was held at Gateway Senior High School. Frank Czura, Megan Darnell, Matt Hartley, and Angelo Giunta participated in the events.

The mousetrap car – The objective is to build a vehicle that is powered solely by a standard-sized mouse trap that will travel and stop closest to a finish line in the shortest amount of time. Frank Czura and Megan Darnell spent a considerable amount of time, after school, perfecting the mousetrap car. The car stopped at 5 meters, which was accurate for this event.

Pitsco Straw Rocket Challenge- Students had to build a straw rocket that will travel a certain distance with the most accuracy. Students had 15 minutes to build this and test it. Then they had an additional 5 minutes to make modifications.

Spontaneous Build – Students had to build something that would carry 15 marbles to a coffee can. The students were 6 meters away from the coffee can. The Plum team built a Styrofoam bucket and used string and a pulley system to get the bucket to the coffee can. All 15 marbles made it successfully into the coffee can.
