Students Bring Home Trophy from Raytheon Engineering Games
Congratulations to David Sackler '17 and Sean Katz '16 for their first place win at the Raytheon Engineering Games on February 19!
The students partnered with the Culver City High School team to build a "star tracker" that could be used for navigation. Ninety minutes was allotted for them to build a device that could remain aligned with a distant bright object (such as a star) no matter what orientation the craft (spaceship) was traveling in.
Freshman David and sophomore Sean were among the youngest to compete in the event. Thirty-two schools participated with teams comprised of mostly juniors and seniors, which makes their victory even more impressive!
This is the fifth year that Milken students have participated in the games, coming in second last year, but this is the first year they have won.
Robotics team members Yonina Brenner '16 and Noah Berks '15, were also in attendance, demonstrating the team robot to the other teams, the press, and state and national government officials.
Milken School is a college prep private day school in Los Angeles established on the foundation of the highest academic standards and Jewish values. This Jewish Day School serves students in grades 7-12.
