The once spacious technology education center at Algoma High School is getting more cramped thanks to the generosity of local businesses. On Thursday, the Algoma Wolf Tech received a new computer numerical control (CNC) machine thanks to D&S Machine Service in Luxemburg. Students enrolled in the program have also had the opportunity to work with machinists from D&S Machine Service and Algoma-based Precision Machine to hone their craft even further. Technology Education teacher Matt Abel says it is great exposure to an in-demand career for the students.
In over three years, Algoma Wolf Tech has manufactured close to 11,000 parts for Kewaunee County manufacturers, netting the program $50,000 in that time.
