 Career Pathways Program

Students from our Career Pathways Program recently had a chance to work with Jose Pestana, a manufacturing engineer at Schneider Electric - Invensys in Foxboro.

 

 

      MHS students Chris Buchanan (left) and Jed O'Connell (right) reversed engineered a test fixture. They both had to create their own model of the fixture using Siemens NX Cad software. They designed the fixture by using measuring tools consisting of Dial calipers, micrometers, and other measuring equipment to measure and create their own Cad model. From their Cad model, they created manufacturing drawings with all the dimensions needed for fabrication. The prints went to our tool department for fabrication, then to test engineering for wiring, and then installed into the main test station. The instruments this test station checks are meters used by Con Edison for metering steam to their customers. The test station calibrates and checks the meters are measuring steam correctly.
      A thank you to all of our business/community partners who provide real world experience to our students through the Career Pathways Program.

 Senior Projects

 

SENIOR PROJECT


The Senior Project is an academic as well as a hands-on experience that allows students to demonstrate and display their mastery of the 21st century skills they acquire during their years at Mansfield High School. Students propose a topic or area of which they have a desire or passion to explore. Students develop a challenging but achievable project goals that represent a “learning stretch.” Students then complete minimum of 20 fieldwork hours.

In addition to fieldwork, Senior Project students also complete a research paper on a topic related to their fieldwork and also create a digital portfolio. The Senior Project culminates in a final presentation before a Senior Project board that consists of faculty and community members. Students are guided through each aspect of the Senior Project program through a variety of assignments, class meetings, and individual conferences.

Courageous Player Award

                Congratulations to senior football player Cam Nagle who will receive the Massachusetts High School Football Coaches Association Courageous Player Award at an awards banquet on April 27th at Lantana's in Randolph.  Cam is one of seven players in the state of Massachusetts who will be honored for "overcoming a physical challenge, enduring a hardship and serving as an inspiration to his team".

                Cam was seriously injured in a car accident during the summer of 2012 and missed his junior year of football during the rehabilitation process.  He assisted the team during the fall of 2012 by filming all of the games.  He returned to the field in his senior year and was a key contributor on the Mansfield HS State Championship team as a defensive back and a member of the special teams.

Three football players were selected for the Shriner's All-Star Game at Bentley in
June. Congratulations left to right: Kyle Wisnieski, Mike Hershman and Steve Zieselman.

      Senior Captains Kyle Wisnieski and Steve Zieselman of Mansfield High School will be honored by the National Football Foundation as two of the top 20 scholar-athletes in Eastern Massachusetts. The Eastern MA chapter of the Foundation will hold their awards banquet on Sunday, May 4th at the Newton Marriott. 

      Steve will be attending Colby College in the fall and Kyle will be attending Bentley University in the fall and both will continue their football careers on the college level.
