Gooding High School wood shop students designed and  made plaques for the International Envirothon Competition that was held in Pocatello, ID last July. 82 plaques were made and went out to schools in 26 states & 3 Foreign countries.

These plaques were designed their new V-Carve software and fabricated on their new CNC machines.  The ARTEC grant awarded to this  program bought the 5 computers that aided the students in the design process.  The CNC machines were acquired using a grant from CTE.

More projects like this one are in the works.  One such project will be designing and fabricating plaques for all of the Idaho Veterans who have been honorably discharged from all branches of their military service.  This design is being finalized and will be sent to the Idaho State House for their approval.  Once approved, they will begin collecting names and begin production.
