5/12/17 - Several students from Howell High School have advanced to the 89th Annual Michigan Industrial and Technology Education Society (MITES) state student project competition. The students advanced to the state level event by claiming a spot in the top four places in their project category at the MITES Region 8 student project competition on May 6. Eight Howell students Mark Johnson, Brian McCol, Chris Miller, David Mitter, James Owens, Lucas Spencer, Anthony Tedesco and Logan Watson, claimed first place in their category at the regional competition.

For their projects, the students used various design programs and manufacturing equipment such as computer-aided design (CAD) programs and computer numerical control (CNC) machines. Johnson manufactured a dirt bike stand, McColl designed a steel hammer and Miller made a metal forge for heating metal. Mitter designed and created a chess set that he entered into the competition and Owens crafted an ice ax. Spencer’s project was a rendering of a planetary gearbox, Tedesco created and entered a model of a double piston steam engine and Watson made an engraved Howell High School manufacturing sign that he mounted on stained walnut.

The MITES student project competition features 14 divisions. Each division is divided into several categories. Students who earn a first through fourth place prize in their division and category at a regional competition advance to the state competition.
