Columbiana High School Principal David Buzzard, East Palestine High School Principal Tony DelBoccio, and East Palestine High School Superintendent Chris Neifer attended a workshop session at America Makes on Thursday, February 17.
America Makes is a national additive manufacturing innovation institute focused on engaging with school districts nationwide to expand education from kindergarten through high school.
America Makes distributes interactive learning modules that give students the tools to thrive in an innovative economy. Each module lasts between eight and 16 minutes and promotes workforce development education.
America Makes aims to bridge the advanced manufacturing gap in the United States.
Neifer said he looks forward to providing new opportunities for students. “It gives us an avenue with free resources and people in the industry to open those doors for our kids,” he said.
According to Niefer, this will give students another opportunity to engage in education.
