Connor with teachers

Former Project Lead the Way student Connor Meehan recently stopped by the PLTW class of Bob Sedlak to speak with students about the impact PTLW has had on his college career. Here's what Connor (pictured with PTLW teachers Sedlak and Ed Holmok) had to say:

Project Lead The Way did an excellent job in preparing myself and fellow classmates for the collegiate engineering curriculum.  From learning the basics of 3D modeling on Autodesk Inventor, which was used extensively in my earlier classes at Ohio State to exposing us to 'bread-boarding' that allowed me to excel in my ECE 2300 course, Circuits.  Another key aspect of PLTW was the senior year Capstone project which was directly analogous to my Capstone project at Ohio State, where we were assigned to a company, in my case Caterpillar Inc., and we tackled an actual real world problem that they had sought help with.  I graduated from The Ohio State University in December of 2016 with a degree in Welding Engineering and am now going to work full-time for The Lincoln Electric Co..  Special thanks goes out to the Project Lead The Way program, and more importantly to Mr. Holmok and Mr. Sedlak for being exceptional educators as well as sincere mentors throughout my years at Lakewood High School.
