EIHS CORE Class Completes Bluetooth Speaker Design Project

  • East Islip High School’s CORE technology skills class recently completed a multiweek Bluetooth speaker design project consisting of constructing, wiring and testing their Bluetooth speaker kits, laser engraving the top covers of the speaker boxes, 3D printing cellphone holders and using a series of woodworking tools to construct wooden bases. The students spent much of their time in the woodshop learning about all of the machining processes involved. Additionally, they applied finish, stain and wax to the bases prior to completing them. CORE technology skills special education teacher aides William Dodenhoff, Angela Kenny, Ana Sanchez and Rosemarie Waterbury helped guide the students in the various steps towards completion.

    “I enjoyed working in the woodshop because using the power tools was a lot of fun, and I learned a lot of skills that I can use in the future,” student Christopher Urraro said.

    “I enjoyed watching the students work hard towards completing their projects,” Waterbury said. “In the end, they all turned out great!”

    Prior to the end of the school year, a specially designed version of this project will be raffled off in the school store that the CORE students operate.
