Earlier this month, city high school students showed off their latest creations at the University of Maryland BioPark.

The Engineering Design and Development Symposium was the conclusion of a four-year program called Project Lead the Way. Students from seven high schools in Baltimore took part in the STEM curriculum and design products.

Students got a chance to show off their projects to the community. Here’s a snapshot of what they presented:

Autoblinds

  • Poly’s Mikayla Jacob and Montese Hall designed a device to open and close blinds on a timer.

HydroSeeker

  • A UAV that detects moisture on the ground, informing farmers about the best areas to plant crops. It was the approach that Patterson High School’s Desmond Countess, Edward Torres, Fanny Vargas and Fredy Vargas took to addressing the growing demand for food in arid areas.

FlexDrone

  • Edmondson-Westside High School’s Marlo Bellomy, Marvellous Eguatu and Marcus Messem designed a drone that can fit in a bag or briefcase, and grow to 10 times its initial size.

SAW

  • This team made 3D-printed glasses with super magnets that make it easier to put the specs back together. It’s the work of Steven Anderson, Ishma’il Scott and Iyon Williams of the National Academy Foundation School of Baltimore. We’ll be in touch.

You want the truth? It’s bullet proof!

  • Mervo’s Gregory Thomas Jr, Leon Holly and David Lopez have a new vest to protect law enforcement and soldiers from gunfire.
