Intra-curricular Enrichment

Inventor: Leeden Raquel’s Motor Tester


Meet student inventor, Leeden Raquel, a 7th grader at Highlands Intermediate. With skills he acquired through an isisHawaii project with partner 3D Academy and the complex’s STEM initiatives, Leeden created a device to test the torque (rotational force) of motors used in building robots for the VEX robotic program. Collin Kobayashi (CEO/Founder of 3D Academy) helped Leeden and other students develop basic 3-dimensional computer aided design skills for science and robotic applications. Leeden’s initiative (under the supervision of educator and coach, Joan Okai) resulted in his invention, which you can see in action here:
