Visit From Lt. Governor Kleefisch

On Wednesday, May 16th, the Lieutenant Governor of Wisconsin, Rebecca Kleefisch, visited Wabeno High School to see the Fab Lab.  

Among many things, she was extremely impressed with how many students are involved with the Fab Lab and what we have been able to do in such a short period of time.  Having gone to nearly every Fab Lab in the state of Wisconsin, she commented that ours was the only one where she saw so much student engagement and student projects being produced, especially given the fact that we have only had equipment up and running since January.

She was also extremely impressed that we were able to build this lab with a $300,000 referendum, when nearly every other school in the state needs at least twice that amount.

Thanks to all of the staff members that helped make this possible, and a big thanks to our students for making her visit such a great success. And thank you to the community for allowing this facility to happen! 




Anyways, there is a lot yet to come and this website is being added to constantly.
