They did it!! Applause for the McClymonds Engineering Students and the bikes they built themselves!
Thanks to McClymonds High School and The Crucible!
The finish line is in sight! Besides sanding and painting, the bike-building students from the McClymonds Engineering Academy learn one other necessary skill – perseverance!
The Crucible offers classes and workshops in industrial arts for youth. It’s located at 1260 – 7th Street in Oakland, near the West Oakland BART station. For more information: thecrucible.org
To make their bicycle frames – the McClymonds Engineering students go to The Crucible for their “hands-on” lessons!
Just watch the sparks fly!!
The students in the McClymonds High School Engineering Academy are gearing up for a big project with a big payoff – they’re designing and building their OWN BIKES!!! ONews will follow them from start to finish, so hang on for the ride!!
Stay tuned for the next chapter when the students get hands on with tools at The Crucible!!
