Algoma Wolf Tech is proving to be a launching point for students wanting to get involved in technical trades. Since Algoma’s fabrication lab expanded over two years ago, students have been exposed to manufacturing both with metals and wood thanks to partnerships with local companies like Precision Machine and technical education teacher Matt Abel. With many students also getting a jump start on the next phase of their life by earning college credits while in high school, Abel says employers are taking notice.
Wolf Tech has reached people outside its walls as well with its Community Fab Lab days and projects in the city including the warming shelter at its ice rink and activity room at the Algoma Long Term Care Unit.
