CNC TECHNOLOGY DRIVING MHS STUDENTSTO A BRIGHTER FUTUREThe students of Mineola High School are some of the most talented individuals that Long Island has to offer. Eager to learn, studentswork hard day to day, not only in their core classes like math, science and ELA, but also enthusiastically in the wood shop to learn everydayskills. The school recently updated their entire Tech Ed woodworking and metal working classroom, switching from standard conventionalmethods of producing projects to an exclusive “Fab Lab” that consists of some of the most advanced technological equipment used in theindustry. The new Fab Lab at Mineola High School is equipped with machinery that few other schools have on the Island– a CNC Plasmacutter and CNC Router from Techno CNC Systems. Whitney Smith, Principal at MHS, spoke proudly about the new Tech Lab and how it haseffectively and efficiently changed the way the students are learning.“Adding CNC to our high school program was really the next step forus,” stated Smith. “We are always on the cutting edge of technology. We are always searching for the best tools for our students. Lastly, we have always hada traditional wood and metal shop, but now we are focusing on showing thestudents the latest and greatest technology in automation and the studentsare very excited about it. We already knew our students had such great ideas,but now, it is incredible to be able to see these students take their ideas frominception to completion, using CAD/CAM technology,” said Smith.“The school was able to transform the lab from a conventional shopto an advanced lab for students to learn and enhance their engineering skills.The new technology in the Fab Lab has changed everything. All of our 8thgraders get introduced to all the new equipment and do a problem solvingactivity. They get introduced to Aspire CAD/CAM software by choosing a letterof the alphabet, and setting up the job and creating a toolpath. The studentsare shown how to setup and operate the CNC router under the direction of theinstructor,” said Paul Sommer, Tech expert/teacher at Mineola High School.“Having a space like this is unique. We are the only school on Long Island to have made the commitment to adding this technology and advanced learning which benefits our students. Another benefit about the space is that the 8th grade students are all given achance to find a passion in CNC, thus getting them excited for the more advanced tech courses offered in 9-12 grade. We also partneredwith Queensboro College, where students can also receive college credits for courses taken,” Smith said.Transforming the shop and learning the equipment was a challenge for the school, at first. The transformation was a huge commitment, but overall, was a necessity for the school to further their knowledge and better their classes. MHS now has grades 8-12 studentsflowing through the shop for all 9 periods of the day. “We are still learning how to integrate the new equipment into our teaching curriculum.It is a work in progress, but very much worth it. We also spend more time on designing and learning the Aspire, AutoCad and Inventer CAD/CAM programs. As a result, the types of projects have changed tremendously. Before, we used a lot of hard and soft woods, and now, we areusing more plywood. We are getting the students to solve more real world problems such as seating, flat pack furniture, and space organizers.” Sommer stated that, “The biggest challenge to adding CNC into our program was that we were given two high end CNC machines andhigh end computer design programs all at once. This was overwhelming in the beginning, especially since we had little to no experiencewith these types of machines/software. Thanks to the training and exceptional tech support from Techno CNC Systems, we were able toget through the first few months and begin to develop a curriculum for our students. Now, our students are able to use the software andrun the machines with no problems. The possibilities are endless.”MHS recently created an entire robotics team. Smith states, “TheCNC equipment has been tremendously beneficial for our new robotics team,as well. We are able to manufacture our own parts. We can customize any ofour parts. It has also helped us with our alliances with other robotics clubs. Weare now able to help other schools manufacture their own robotics parts.” Notonly is the Fab Lab used for classes and manufacturing robotic team parts,but it is also utilized for many other activities that the entire town requires.Sommer explained how the CNC equipment has completely transformed thetheatre clubs in the elementary, middle and high schools of Mineola. “Onceword got out that we could manufacture pretty much anything, we were getting requests from everyone asking if we could create their designs.”
Paul Sommer and Andrew Woolsey, technology teachers at MHS, were also asked to help with theatre design. They were giventhe project to create stage lighting from the bottom. They were able to route out an entire stage lighting template. “If we had to do these byhand, it would have taken months. We had to create 6 of these and I was able to program it all within minutes, letting the router do the rest,”said Andrew. The theatre director also requested props for the play Aladdin. The tech teachers were able to design and route perfect (andhuge) theatre props for the play.“The students are taught the software, but are given freedoms to think out of the box, challenging their young minds,” says Sommer. Sommer uses online tools available to him and the students for learning and finding quick solutions to immediate challenges. He believes this is a great tool for students to use at home or in the shop, as a secondary way to master Aspire and AutoCad software. The programat MHS has completely transformed the learning process from conventional hand tools to now being able to design, program, and routewhatever they imagine, as well as cut metals with their new CNC Plasma metal cutting machine from Techno CNC. “We had trouble cuttingthick material so I had wanted to research a plasma cutter. We found Techno CNC and fell in love. The machine had great reviews and Technowas a local company. The plasma cutter has changed the welding class by allowing us to cut thick plate steel accurately. In the past, we useda torch or hand held plasma. Having local customer support has been so great– there is always someone there to help whenever we call andthey come to us, as well,” said Sommer.The students have developed a passion for CNC’s, and are even considering manufacturing as a future. “As a high school, it is ourjob to prepare our students for the real world. We want our students to leave high school with an idea and direction, and with the possibility of getting a job that they love after college. We are really focused on getting kids to pursue a pathway for their future here at MHS andwe concentrate on having electives that pave that pathway. We are using this CNC equipment not only in tech classes but in our businessclasses, as well. The CNC equipment has allowed us to create a school
