Photography 2 students have been working on creating a series of works. This month we’re featuring Ali Al-Mishal who is a Sophomore here at East. Ali shot this with his 50mm 1.8 camera lens. Great work Ali!

Skilled and Technical Sciences

Robotics-Engineering-Mechanisms (REM)1

Students who find an interest in robotics typically will move on to REM2 and REM3. This is where students begin to learn how to design, build, and program competition robots. Many of these upper level robotic students end up wanting to compete their robots against other schools across Nebraska. East High REM students have won the LPS Robotics Tournament multiple years along with finishing very well at our Skills USA State Conference. This season, East took 4 teams to the state tournament to compete in two different robotics competitions. East teams finished 2nd and 3rd in one of the competitions along with 2nd in the other. Much of these student’s success stems from their interest gained in REM1 and their knowledge and skillset obtained in REM2 and REM3.

Advanced CAD

Students from the Advanced CAD class (Civil Engineering and Architecture) annually compete in the Home Builders Association of Lincoln Residential Design Contest. This year, three students from the East High class captured spots 1, 2, and 3:

Woods 3

Students in the Woods 3 at East High have created a variety of individual projects for themselves and people in the community. Some of the many examples include:
