This year, there are 5 research teams in the Engineering Design and Development class of the North Penn High School engineering academy.  The main research endeavors that the students are involved with are listed below.  Many of the students within these teams will also be performing various extended and supplementary experiments.  A team research section will be added to the website soon to deomstrate various images and videos of the students' research.  Please check back soon!
