The sixth grade design and modeling class at Black River Middle school recently got to tour Atlantic Tool & Die in Seville. Plant manager Chris Avilies had several engineers explain the process of developing new parts from concept to finished pieces. The company makes products for the automotive, construction power, green energy, and home appliance industries. Students saw the use of 3D drawing and modeling tools they studied in class. They also learned what is needed, from an education standpoint, to become a engineer. Sixth-graders also toured the production floor to see workers in the lab and on the production floor.
