Congratulations, Kelsey Williams, the 2023 NAAE Region I Ideas Unlimited Award Recipient!

Kelsey Williams teaches at Rocky Mountain High School. When the price of lumber skyrocketed during the COVID-19 pandemic, Kelsey introduced the acoustic speaker project to her Intro to Mechanics course, which has more than 130 students enrolled in each year. In this project, students use three pieces of lumber to create an acoustic speaker for their smart phone, with an average cost of $8.00 per student. Not only does this allow students a chance to create an item that is useful, it also allows them to express their creativity and gain confidence in their measuring skills. Students are also able to use a variety of power tools including a planer, table saw, drill press, pneumatic nail gun, and more.
