Video: Cub Manufacturing, Another Student-Run Shop

The success of a student-run high school manufacturing business in Wisconsin is leading other school systems to launch similar programs.

If Cardinal Manufacturing was unique at one time, it no longer is. The machining program at a Wisconsin high school that functions as a student-run contract manufacturing business is now serving as a model for the advance of manufacturing education in other school districts. Cardinal Manufacturing’s teacher and founder recently spoke to a group of business leaders and educators in Ohio who see promise in the program, and the video here recounts the origin of an Indiana high school program that already has its own student-run business underway, Cub Manufacturing.
