This summer Windsor High School students Emma Saucier, Stephen Warner, and Josh Spaulding worked as interns at the American Precision Museum. They demonstrated the machines in the Working Machine Shop to tourists, helped with behind the scene tours, developed new school programs, helped to lead a 3D printing workshop, and made telegraph receivers for a family maker program. They learned some math and measuring, learned some history, and capably passed on their knowledge to our visitors, young and old. At the end of the summer, they toured Whelen Engineering to learn more about the various career paths of the engineers, managers, and manufacturing technicians.
This week, representatives from Whelen Engineering were here to meet with our ICAPS class and discuss the production process and how math, science, and engineering is needed in their job requirements.
