This is the first year for a new Junior/Senior elective class in aerospace engineering. They hope it will grow next year. Yes the one class was very small. 2 classes at West and 2 at East. The kids were smart and mostly very enthusiastic. A few also run cross country and several expressed interest in coming to OCIN events.

Interesting mapping, with the two identical high schools, so I was able to copy the school building and the immediately surrounding walkways, and the football stadium from one map to the other, then just rotate them a few degrees. But of course the rest of the grounds were laid out differently, - identical ball fields, etc, but in different configurations.

The schools are several miles apart, but we had lots of time between classes to take down and set up courses and get a decent lunch.

It looks like the numbers flipped yesterday...

Probably based on student scheduling and what period(s) other electives are offered.

They used the same plans! Wow.

They should have considered mirror-image or something...

Bizarro World effects...

And my past experience with buildings is that as-built is never identical to the architect's plans, But so far I have not found any actual differences between the two buildings! at least the buildings themselves. Some slight differences in the front (steps and concrete planters in front of one but not the other), and in sidewalks versus parking lot touching the northeast corners. But they really went out of their way to make them perfectly identical.

We've got five high schools out here all built with the same plan. The grounds are different but the main building is the same.
