Project Description:

Following the recommendation of a committee, which included local manufacturing and engineering leaders in demand for skilled trades workers, Arrowhead High School transformed its old industrial arts space into the school’s new Engineering, Manufacturing, and Design Center—a new learning space that provides the flexibility and equipment to adapt to advances in manufacturing.

A large design area, an innovation lab, two engineering labs, and a manufacturing lab will facilitate the concepts of identifying problems, creating solutions, and implementing them in the manufacturing phase, necessary skills for careers in design and production. The state-of-the-art space is outfitted with equipment donated by local manufacturing and engineering firms. Its first year, the space will serve 260 freshman and sophomore students with much expanded opportunities in the engineering and manufacturing curriculum.

“For future engineers and skilled workers, this center gives students the opportunities to create, research, innovate, collaborate, problem solve, make and lead. For area businesses, the center will provide a pipeline of motivated, skilled employees who can begin to fill the manufacturing job gap throughout our region and beyond. While this project is unique to Arrowhead, it serves as a model for other high schools across Wisconsin and the Midwest.”
