Teachers, industry partners discuss technical education

CNC Solutions is committed to working with our local community to close the manufacturing skills gap by joining and directing technical training and STEM education initiatives. In line with that mission, our president, Ron Roehl, recently held a tech ed summit at our company training facility to bring educators and community leaders together for a discussion on increasing access to technology education programs. Thank you to The Watertown Daily Times for featuring CNC Solutions and our tech ed summit on their website. http://www.wdtimes.com/news/local/article_d60c659c-9228-11e6-9810-ef0267bb9261.html

“Roehl says he would like to shift gears to help another tech ed program get off the ground, Johnson Creek’s. The Johnson Creek School District has a new school and an empty space to work with for a technology education program, and Roehl said he would like to help that district in addition to the Jefferson and Fort Atkinson school districts get their programs to the level of the one in Watertown.”

    I believe that you need to start with some mechanical training first. These kids need to know how machines work and move. Whether it be a CNC machine or a Robot.
    Then they can move on to programming. With CNC they need to understand cutting tools. What speed and speed do I need? And how does that tool sound when cutting.
    I just don’t see those skills in the people we interview.

    What your doing is a good start.
