AHS Academy of Engineering Smasis Collaboration


With the professional guidance of Dr. Kazuko Fuchi (Research Engineer, University of Dayton Research Institute) and Prof. Edwin A. Peraza Hernandez (Assistant Professor, University of California, Irvine) and expert advice from Prof. Euihark Lee (Assistant Professor, Michigan State University), Azusa High School Academy students took on a project to develop packaging designs that would limit damage to eggs during transportation and storage. Students used origami concepts and techniques to design and fabricate their packaging ideas. Students were given constraints to their design as they successfully tested their construction. A select group of students will have the opportunity to present their design solutions in this year’s SMASIS conference that will be held in September 2021.

Throughout the project, students learned vital engineering and soft skills that will aid in their pursuit in either attending college or a career in a technical field. This project was especially difficult considering the challenge of completing tasks remotely. This is one of the goals of the AHS Academy of Engineering. In the following year, these students will dive deep into another project involving soft robotics. Everybody at AHS is proud of these students and thank all who helped throughout the project.
