WOODLAND HILLS—The Northrop Grumman Corporation sponsored a project for students on May 22, that included demonstrations and competitions. The project was marked to conclude the year for the mentoring and scholarship program from the High School Involvement Partnership (HIP).
The HIP program helps students to work ,enhance their career awareness and increase their developmental goals. One of the benefits of the program is that it provides on-the-job experience and students work with Northrop Grumman employees to help design and engineer a project.
“There were eight total Canoga Park High School students who were participants in the High School Involvement Partnership (HIP) program sponsored by Northrop Grumman’s Woodland Hills facility for the 2013-2014 school year,” said Joyce Chang of the Communications Department at Northrop Grumman to Canyon News.
Those eight students from Canoga Park High School participated in robotic competition and computer science demonstration project on May 22.
Four of the eight students were seniors in the program and concluded the program by demonstrating the programming computer science skills and engineering skills by creating video games, autonomous robots and even a self-contained system to control and monitor environmental conditions for plants.
