Students Michael Alquist, John Kendzierski both from Saint Ignatius High School and Christopher Warneka from Wickliffe High School, presented on their experiences at the 2010 Western Michigan University Introduction to Metal Casting Seminar sponsored by the CAC-Ohio AFS. All three students took a great interest in the course work. They learned and found it exciting to see small size foundry work scaled up in the industry on plant tours. They created their own molds and poured metal in their designs. They have expressed interest in continuing their education in science and engineering fields.
