Sheet Metal Local 20

Darryl Esterline from the Sheet Metal Workers Local 20 brought an exciting hands on lesson of making Christmas Tree ornaments from sheet metal. The club members used a metal stamp to create the shape, then polished them and personalized them using an engraving tool. A group of students were heard discussing how awesome the project was and how they like being able to give the ornaments as gifts. Thank you Darryl for your thoughtful planning and awesome project.

MKS and IKORCC

Travis Becker, MKS and Kyle Gresham, IKORCC rocked the club last night with some blue print reading competition. The kids were challenged with reading the blue prints of the club building and finding specific locations. Did you know there are secret rooms you can only find by using the blue prints???  Nah, I just made that up, but it’d be cool if there were. They were also tasked with reading the blue prints of our storage shed and constructing a Lego model based solely on their interpretation of the blue prints. Everyone compared their models to the actual shed to see who got it right. What a great learning lesion. Thank you Travis and Kyle for all the planning and prep work you put into this session. Your dedication to teaching our youth really shows. Also want to give a big shout out to Kurt Beuchel, one of our board members for his continued support and participation in our trades program.
