(Clarinda)–It’s amazing what students can learn through Dave Carper’s Industrial Tech program at the Clarinda High School.
Dave’s curriculum is vast, including Auto Tech, Small Engines, Computer Drafting, Architecture Drafting, Pre-Engineering and Home Improvement.
Sophomores Connor Stull and Rio Woodyard have been soaking up everything offered through Pre-Engineering, including the opportunity to learn 3D printing.
Working through advanced computer programs, students learn how to design and build 3D models that are actually put to practical use, including a splint Connor manufactured which was used to treat a fellow student’s injury.
The students learn the fundamentals and apply their skills, ultimately seeing the fruits of their labors through a 3D plotter, or printer, which actually builds what they’ve designed right in Mr. Carper’s classroom setting.
It’s fascinating stuff that helps enhance lives and build futures and you can get a glimpse of what takes place within Mr. Carper’s video here at KMAland.com.
