Welcome to the home of the MEAM program!
& Advanced Manufacturing
Welcome prospective MEAM students and parents! Our program continues to grow as this year we have 3 shops going. Our incoming freshmen are super excited to be here and have shown it with their amazing progress in their manufacturing and machining skills. Some students have mastered the laser cutter and have even begun to program the CNC milling center. Our returning 2nd and 3rd year students have been working hard to earn even more industry credentials and push their robotics and electrical knowledge, proving their growing industry worth.
Here you'll find a bunch of useful information about our amazing program. If after browsing our pages you are still brimming with questions, please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Industry Certificates and Awards Day June 5, 2017
On June 5, 2017 we held our first annual MEAM Industry Certificates and Awards Day. Our students have worked hard all year and today have earned their OSHA 10 Hour cards for General Industry Safety as well as their NIMS Level 1 MMS Certificate (National Institute for Metalworking Skills - Materials, Measurement and Safety).
Today's awards demonstrate the effectiveness of the MEAM program in providing job-ready skills to the young people of our community and were the were the culmination of a year's hard work by our impressive group of students. In addition, we'd like to thank our staff and administration who were instrumental in creating this MEAM program.
Congressman Lance's Visit
On Thursday, February 23, 2017, Congressman Leonard Lance visited our MEAM shop. Our students treated Mr. Lance to a real world production operation which included raw material handling and processing, primary machining on CNC mill and CNC lathe, finishing operations on manual mill, surface grinder and belt sander and finally quality control. In addition, students showed off their emerging skills in robotics development and programing and ended the day with creating a 3D model of Mr. Lance, which they will process and 3D print as a token of our thanks for his visit.
