The Career and Technical Education (CTE) Department and the Art Department at New London High School will host an open house from 4-7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 9.
The public is invited to see displays and students in action working on skill building projects that help prepare students for work in many different careers. The open labs will include the welding, machining, small engine repair, drafting and engineering, woodworking, agriculture and ceramics labs.
In the drafting and engineering lab, Project Lead the Way students will have puzzle cube projects on display. Students will also be on hand to explain the design process and demonstrate 2-D and 3-D sketching/modeling using Autodesk Inventor and AutoCAD.
In the agriculture lab visitors can view rats on feeding trials from small animal care, or even view the perch that the natural resource class manages. Other projects from Veterinary Science and Intro to Agriculture will also be on display.
In the woods and metals labs, students will be on hand working on class assignments. Staff will be available in all labs to answer questions and explain projects completed in their courses.
In the Ceramics Studio, pottery making demonstrations will be offered. Artwork will be on display from Ceramics I and II, as well as drawings and paintings.
