Sturgeon Bay Schools to Purchase CNC Machine

In an effort to provide technical education students with up to date equipment, the Sturgeon Bay Board of Education Wednesday evening agreed to spend up to $44,000 to acquire a CNC machine. CNC, which stands for Computer Numerical Control, refers to machinery that is operated by way of a computer. The equipment is essential for students wanting to make a smooth transition into the local work force. The school board was told that a plan has been developed to offer a CNC course in the district in cooperation with Northeast Wisconsin Technical College. Instructors Brian Pahl & Seth Wilson were able to purchase one machine through a grant & are working to raise an additional $10,000 for the program. The school district is currently paying NWTC $12,000 annually to utilize the technical college’s CNC mobile lab. By acquiring the new machine, the district could save that amount on a yearly basis. Money to pay for the machine will come from the district’s fund balance.
