LHS Industrial Technology

January 16, 2014

The high school Industrial arts classes are in full swing this semester.  Before Christmas our woods classes did their mass production projects.  The classes were involved with all stages of manufacturing, including; project design, component manufacture, assembly, finish and marketing.  The project went well with the majority of the students selling their allotted number of items.  The profits from the sale of these projects will go to offset expenses from their next project.  The classes started working on their final required project right after Christmas.  I look at this as a way for the class to experience the processes involved in the manufacturing industry.  Some of our largest local employers are involved in manufacturing, this project allows my classes to experience this type of career while deciding on what path to take in their future education.
