CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - Dan Calimer says the software program he used to design a bridge saved him three hours worth of calculating the angles of trusses by hand. "It'll tell you which bars are the compressions and how much they can take," Calimer said. A digital truck even rolls across the bridge on his computer screen at the Franklin County Career Technology Center. Calimer, 18, ended his final semester at the career center last week. The remainder of his 2007-08 school year will be spent in academic classes at Waynesboro Area Senior High School, his home school, from which he plans to graduate in five months.
