Lancaster County students compete in STEM contests at technology conferenceHigh Steel Structures LLC
As wooden glider planes catapulted toward the ceiling of the school gymnasium, pairs of model dragster cars powered by carbon dioxide canisters raced along a double track nearby.
Across the gym, just past the balsa wood bridge models, a robot platypus came to life — its eyes glowing and tail and jaw moving.
Along the wall of the gym, a judge used a machine to test the weight-bearing properties of a couple dozen balsa-wood trusses.
These projects were part of the nearly 60 different competitions happening under one school roof Saturday as part of the Pennsylvania Technology Student Association’s annual Region 2 conference.more +

High Concrete in Denver making big precast panels for Statue of Liberty MuseumHigh Concrete Group LLC
Helping to construct a museum on tiny Liberty Island, home of the Statue of Liberty, is not an ordinary task.
That’s why the project’s designers turned to a company that’s demonstrated extraordinary skills — High Concrete Group.
Under a $2.9 million contract, Denver-based High Concrete is producing and erecting 144 pieces, mostly architectural precast concrete panels, for the striking building.
“We have a reputation of taking on sophisticated and complex projects...,” said President J. Seroky. “I think they looked at us because we have experience with challenging projects similar to the one they have.”
The Statue of Liberty — Ellis Island Foundation, with the support of the National Park Service, is building the 26,000-square-foot museum on the 14.7-acre island.
Liberty Island remains open to visitors during the construction of the $70 million museum, set to open in 2019.

Constructible Models and Collaboration ToolsHigh Concrete Group LLC
When High Concrete Group was asked to help bring an 8547 sq m (92,000 sq h) office building at 1200 Intrepid Avenue to life, it was up for the challenge. Later, they were also rewarded for their work as this project received the 2016 Harry H. Edwards Industry Advancement Award from the PCI Institute. Located at the Navy Yard's Corporate Center in Philadelphia, a master-planned development within the Navy Yard encompassing approximately 125,400 sq m (1.35 million sq h), the Intrepid building is constructed entirely of flat concrete planks. Each piece is set at an angle, so the composition gradually becomes a curving wall with mesmerizing optical effects that make the front wall appear as though it is falling to the ground like a row of dominos. Three sides of the structure are conventional flat walls, while the east facade has a variety of radii, ranging from just over 98 m (320 h) at the ground floor to just over 2,713 m (8,900 h) at the parapet of the roof.
