Randy Schmidt

Senior Project Manager, Fink Roberts & Petrie

Randy has mentored with the Indiana affiliate for 11 years. In 2010 he became a team leader and four years later was asked to start up a team at a new high school. The operation of this new ACE team so impressed school administrators that they now allow students who demonstrate mastery of competencies aligned with state standards to earn regular credit. These administrators are now pushing to have ACE approved as a state-wide curriculum. Randy has created several popular engineering activities, including mixing concrete cylinders which are tested at a lab to see which is strongest.
