British School Pupil Wins PTC Award

WASHINGTON, Nov. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- British School of Washington pupil, Alex Lorman, was the first American student to be recognized in the thirteenth Annual PTC Awards, winning the award in the Education, K-12 division. PTC is a software company that provides product development for companies. The PTC Awards Competition is an annual program where users of PTC solutions are given the opportunity to highlight their product development achievements. The competition has historically attracted submissions from some of the most innovative product development teams around the world. All entries were pre- judged by an expert panel, including independent judges from major engineering publications. Three finalists were selected from the industry categories and winners were determined by worldwide on-line voting.

This year's PTC Awards Competition was held at the PTC/USER Conference in Orlando, FL. Alex created an Open60 class Trimaran, which won for best K-12 design over numerous other entries. The design, along with the other category winners, can be seen on the PTC website at The winner on the college/university side of the competition was a group of students from the University of Oklahoma, who used Pro/ENGINEER to build a Formula SAE Vehicle.

The British School of Washington participates in PTC's Design & Technology in Schools Program which provides free software for both classroom and home use for students. This innovative program has allowed for computer design to become a staple of the Design & Technology curriculum at BSW. Alex was among the first group to use the software. Alex has the distinction of being the first BSW pupil admitted to University -- this young school had its first graduating class in June of 2005, but Alex, then a high school junior, was admitted to St. John's University in Annapolis allowing him to begin his University career a year early.

The British School of Washington is part of the British Schools of America which were founded in 1998 when the first school opened in Washington D.C. The British Schools of Boston and Houston both opened in September 2000, the British School of Chicago opened in September 2001 and the British American School of Charlotte, the fifth school, opened in September 2004. It is anticipated during the next few years that the total number of British Schools of America will grow to 20, all located in major cities across the USA. Pupils at the British Schools of America follow the International Primary Curriculum, the National Curriculum of England through GCSEs and the International Baccalaureate Diploma. Teachers at the schools are recruited directly from the UK and are trained in the delivery of the National Curriculum, the IPC and the IB.

    I can trust that British School Pupil Wins PTC Award is the primary inscription and possibly you will take in a spot stuff from this site or I trust that you can see some different destinations that can control you wih Paperwritingpro so we as a whole are anticipating that for them in the leisure time now.

    This article was very interesting; however, a better description of what Industrial Design is(i.e. Product Design) and how PTC design software is used in this field would have been helpful, particularly for those who have used CAD software in other applications.
    A rather glaring error is the mis-naming of the institute of higher learning which Mr Lorman now attends. It is St John's College in Annapolis, not St Johns University (which is in New York).
    A little less information about the predicted expansions of the chain of British Schools and a little more about their (clearly unique) design program ---and who teaches it---would have been more relevant to the article. A few sentences about Mr Lorman's design background & experiences, in addition to his use of the PTC software, could have further supported the article. As itwas, I was left feeling rather as if Mr Lorman's design win was somehow connected to the expansion of the British Schools.
    Despite these reservations, it is a crdedit to Mr Lorman, the British School Design Program, and PTC that an American student has won this prestigious award.
