How Woods and Autos Classes Help Build Students’ Futures
October is manufacturing month and Dr. Pearson takes the opportunity to talk with 3 students enrolled in both Autos and Woods at St. Charles East High School. They have a conversation about what they like about being hands-on in the classroom, some of their favorite projects, and what they hope to do in the future. They also discuss how the challenges of learning during the pandemic from a book and videos provided important background knowledge about vocabulary and tools that helped them hit the ground running when in-person school resumed. These 3 passionate, articulate, and skilled craftsmen share how they hope to build upon what they learned at East into successful meaningful careers.
