SCHNECKSVILLE, Pa. — First-year Electromechanical/Mechatronics Technology students teamed up to design miniature golf holes that incorporate electrical circuits.
Their teacher, Lisa Heineman, invited Lehigh Career & Technical Institute staff to play the holes on Thursday (Feb. 8) and rate the experience. Three morning-session teams and four afternoon-session teams competed to be the “judge’s choice” winner.
Designing and building miniature golf holes was the culminating project for a unit on electrical circuits. Students used circuits to add obstacles like windmills, turntables, and paddle wheels, as well as decorative lights, to their holes.
Mrs. Heineman reviewed staff scorecards and tabulated the results, revealing that Team 1 and Team 6 won the morning and afternoon session competitions, respectively.
The Team 1 members are:

Congratulations to the winning teams and kudos to all of the participants!
