TEACHERS BRINGS EDUCATION AND BUSINESS TOGETHER

TEACHERS BRINGS EDUCATION AND BUSINESS TOGETHER 

When Steve Meyer M.S. ’00 began teaching technology and engineering education at Brillion High School five years ago, he updated the curriculum—from creating craftspeople to creating innovative thinkers and doers.

Students began to invent automated devices, such as a gas grill that weighs the cut of meat and cooks it for the appropriate length of time.

Technology and engineering education enrollment has now tripled, and more than two-thirds of the school population take the classes.

Local manufacturer Ariens Co. took notice of Meyer’s work, and recently donated $1.5 million to build a state-of-the-art technology and engineering education center for the school.

Steve Meyer ’00 developed an innovative technology education curriculum that led to a $1.5 gift from industry to build a technology and engineering education center for his school. Read what the Manitowoc Herald Times had to say about this community-building event:
