Teachers make trivets and candy bars

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.”
