About this Grantee

To develop problem solving and statistical analysis and to provide students with marketable skills, Mr. Logan and Mr. Mariano develop a Six Sigma technical training program. Students receive lectures on the Six Sigma methodology, a cutting-edge program favored by innovative companies and valued nationally, and attain first level certification. Applying concepts from the lectures, students participate in catapult, robotics, and bridge building competitions, a school dugout construction project, and internships that investigate engineering improvement opportunities within the school or business community.
