TEMPLETON — This year more than 200 engineering and art projects, including demonstrations in 3D printing, laser cutting, modeling, virtual reality, drones, go carts, electronics, art, custom furniture, drift trikes, robotics and ceramic projects will be on full display Wednesday May 3 at Templeton High School from 3-5 p.m. There will also be projects from the middle school on display as well as a booth from Cuesta Engineering.

“I can’t wait to see what they have to show this year,” said THS senior Serenity Wilcox. “The stuff they do is absolutely amazing. Last year there was even a glow in the dark table. The stuff they come up with, it’s crazy!”

Templeton High School Engineering (STEM) and Art programs represent the cutting edge of hands-on application of material. Students in these programs complete a rigorous project based learning curriculum all year, and the THS Engineering and Art Maker Faire is a culmination of all of that hard work and dedication. The grand finale for the event will be a drone battle of eleven custom battle drones designed, built, tested and piloted by the THS Engineering students.  The drones will fight to the death in an arena in the gym starting at 5 p.m.  The event is free and open to the public and includes hands on experiences with the projects and food/beverages for sale.
