Precision Machining instructor Bob Arcipowski and South Tech Principal Jake Lohse delivered a special donation to the students of Maplewood-Richmond Heights High last month.
Last spring, Principal Mike Dittrich of MRH Middle school asked South Tech for some help. Skating students were taking their boards to the halls of the school and he needed a secure solution that encouraged students to keep their boards outside.
Our Precision Machining students went to work designing a skateboard rack. With input from MRH skaters who would be using the rack, Brad Landis (Oakville) and Caleb Harter (Home School) developed an attractive solution that kept boards safe and secure. Brad bent all the tubing, while Caleb fabricated the plates and welded the entire structure together.
Thank you to MRH Middle for allowing our students to create this project!
