A year or two ago I read a thread where one mentor mentioned that their high school had a fabrication class (my term). Local companies would order custom parts from the high school and the fabrication class would make the parts. Most of the students in the class were on the FRC team, so it served as training for FRC, plus funding for the FRC team.
I’d like to talk to a mentor about this program and how it works. I just know that trying to search “high school” “shop” and “fabrication” on CD will basically return almost every thread CD. So I thought I would just ask to find the person/program.
