Minuteman High School recently recognized four students from Stow, Arlington, Lexington, and Needham with the Student of the Term Award. The award is based on nominations from teachers and celebrates both academic achievement and good citizenship. One student is awarded per grade. Read more.
All grade 12 students are required to put together a Senior Project, which is presented in the spring of their senior year and demonstrates an in-depth understanding of their career technical major. The seniors make their presentation in the school's theater in front of their peers and teachers, which is filmed by the Multimedia students. A panel of judges, which are primarily members of Minuteman's Program Advisory Committees and consist of business partners and faculty, watch the videos and evaluate the presentations based on a grading rubric. 

In collaboration with teachers, we are highlighting a few of the impressive Senior Projects for the 2021-22 school year on our website and social media. Unfortunately, we don't have time to highlight all of the projects! Great job, students! View more at

Erica Vogel takes "do it yourself" to a whole new level in her Senior Project. The Horticulture student from Stow used invasive species around Minuteman's campus to create jam and skin lotion. 
The practice is called "wild crafting," when invasive plants that harm native plants are harvested and used to create products that benefit people -- the jam and the skin lotion. Erica says wildcrafting is an effective way to reduce the spread of invasive plants.

For his senior project, Metal Fabrication and Welding senior Carter Calzini, of Weston, crafted a tensegrity table. Often referred to as a "floating table" due to its visual appearance, a tensegrity table is constructed using a system of cables and struts relying only on pure tension to hold up the table, giving it its "floating" look.
Anis Iftikhar, a senior in Electrical Wiring from Arlington, built a fire alarm panel from scratch.

Iftikhar designed which devices he would use, mounted all of the components, and wired them. Iftikhar provided details of the two most common fire alarm systems: conventional and addressable. He provided a video demonstration on a fire alarm panel, showing what occurs once it is activated. Iftikhar plans to study electrical engineering at UMass Boston.

Environmental Science student Jack Sacca of Belmont used his stellar artistic skills to illustrate species of birds that are native to New England and are especially susceptible to the effects of climate change. Jack drew all of the illustrations himself. He highlighted the effects of climate change, such as migration, nesting loss due to loss of space, breeding seasons being altered, food becoming harder to find, and vegetation loss. He illustrated the Least Tern, Piping Plover, and many others.
