We are honored to announce that as of February 12, 2021, Dade County High School is officially the proud owner of a Foundry in a Box demonstration kit donated to them by the Tennessee Chapter of the American Foundry Society (AFS).
Dade County High School is a public school about 20 miles outside of Chattanooga, TN, in Trenton, GA. The school has advanced programs and trade curriculums between mechatronics, AP sciences, and welding. There are plenty of courses that correspond to the foundry industry. With over 5 foundries and several industrial manufacturers within a 30 miles radius, students of Dade County have serveral options for future, gainful employment.
Dr Turner and Dr Bailer initiated the partnership with the industry to support their students. The objective was to help students correlate information from class with real world applications and find careers close to home that are lucrative and enjoyable. With so many potential employers in need of employees, this is a favorable time to show the opportunity to students.
