Oakridge Elementary was one of the bottom 1 % worst schools in the nation (based on test scores). Oakridge has scored the highest test score improvements for the last three years in the Sacramento Unified School district. One of the teachers, Nicole Quinn, coordinated this project. She has been an educator there for over 12 years.
Recognizing the importance of engineering to the company and in the Home Improvement industry, Duralum has been proud to sponsor tomorrow’s engineers through funding real life applications since 2013. Eighty student led Formula SAE teams from universities around the world traveled to Lincoln, Nebraska this June, vying for top finishes in static and dynamic events. The competition evaluates design, performance, and business acumen. In addition to competing against one another in acceleration, skid pad, autocross, and endurance events, each team also won points for its design theory and analysis, and its ability to market the yearlong project as a business venture and detail how well money was spent. This year’s competition brought a new level of passion from each team—especially from the University of Southern California Trojans. USC performed better than it has in over five years, placing 7th in the business presentation and 22nd in the cost event. While a differential fluid anomaly disqualified the team from the final (and point-heavy) endurance event, USC performed well otherwise and proudly finished in 40th place overall—a personal best in recent years.
