It was a rough load in. But we did it. Lots of little issues. Most resolved. We have an artistic license box issue. An annoying box. There is a lot to do preparing for STL fox!
Yesterday, I found a broken scroller (on of the ones bought over the summer) placed with all the working scrollers in the shop. This has solidified a belief that has been building. Our students need to fix more stuff. You need confidence, a sense of responsibility and practice. I know wee can do better, so we will.
This next term, I will continue having repair workshop time 3-5 MWF starting on Friday, January 11th. I am expecting anyone in the sophomore class or a junior or senior tech major that does not have an assignment to do will be there. I will give each student a project and all of you will be expected to complete them. There is a lot to do in our shop and since initiative seems to be low, we are going to push you to do it.
Whoo – hoo!
