Pennridge High students use STEM to build guitars from scratch

BUCKS COUNTY, Pa. – Four Pennridge High School students took on a unique STEM challenge, building acoustic guitars from scratch.

The students used their knowledge of mathematics and carpentry to solve the task.

“We build our acoustic guitars from scratch, we start with big wooden blanks, front of the guitar, back of the guitar, sides of the guitar, all the internal bracing,” says Tech Ed instructor Matt Peitzman.

“It typically takes about 100 hours to build an acoustic guitar from scratch.”

STEM, which stands for Science, Technology, Engineering & Math, are after-school learning projects for students that focus on the application of science to solve problems.
