Davenport West High School students have completed various projects in a wide range of disciplines, including business, automotive, welding, science, and engineering. These projects promote the health and wellbeing of DavenportWest High School and its students. The focus of their projects is to increase school pride among all students and teachers by improving the look and the feel of West High School. They designed and constructed a new fence for the school  parking lot, created an academic hall of honor, established a Leadership Day, rennovated school courtyards, improved the efficiency of the school blood drive, designed buddy benches, and built a disc golf course.

One of the most noteworthy student projects is Endotherm- a life-saving product developed for infants. The endotherm team created a bracelet which monitors an infant’s body temperature and alerts parents if the child’s temperature gets too high. This product is aimed at preventing infant death due to being left in a hot vehicle.

  • Implementing Leadership Day. Team members worked with school administrators and community partners to design and host several leadership conferences for students throughout Davenport. They successfully raised over six hundred dollars to implement the events, and inspired hundreds of students to become leaders in their community.
  • Creating a more aesthetically pleasing school environment. Team members successfully created and implemented several projects to make their school a more beautiful and functional environment. Their projects include the renovation of the school courtyard and the school fence, and the installation of a Wall of Academics.
  • Increasing connection among students. Team members designed and built Buddy Benches and distributed them to four elementary schools in the Davenport area. These benches create a space for students to socialize with each other. Team members are also working on installing a disc golf course on the Davenport West campus, which will provide recreational space for all students.
  • Providing winter clothing and food to those in need. By designing and selling calendars to raise funds, students purchased and distributed winter clothing and food baskets to community members in need
  • Increasing efficiency of the school blood drives. Students completely revitalized the blood drive registration process at Davenport West’s four annual blood drives.
