Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

Steve Dicus of Oakmont High School and Dan Frank of Rocklin High School worked together to train other teachers in making two projects – a trivet and a candy bar. Participants in the November 11 Lab Tour worked with MasterCam and SolidWorks, used CNC router, produced model candy bars as rapid prototypes, made molds with a vacuum former and used other tools to compelete the projects.

Evaluations included these comments:

  • “Learning SolidWorks and asking questions about CAD programs was very valuable.”
  • “Great getting together with other CTE teachers.”
  • “It is always great meeting with other CTE programs. We get to see who has equipment and how they use it.”
  • “This was really fun and informed my practice.”
