South Park Middle School students in Mr. Whittington’s 7th and 8th grade Applied Engineering & Technology Club have been hard at work building clocks and learning practical skills in the application and safe usage of tools and machines.
Students in the AET Club have learned how to safely use the power miter saw, planer, jointer, router, cordless drills and other hand tools. Additionally, students utilized the laser engraver to etch the faces and numbers onto their clocks.
Students will continue to develop practical skills that will last a lifetime.
The AET Club meets for an hour and a half after school each week. Students will continue to build several other projects while learning how to use additional tools, machines and software.
