Teachers make woodworking relevant to these Grand Rapids high schoolers
When I took wood shop in high school, the project was a step stool. I know. Not very exciting.
To get high school students more excited about woodworking and to get them more active, an industrial arts teacher and a gym teacher got together and came up with a new kind of class. Kids can make their own longboard skateboard, surfboard, snowboard, or skis.
The class at Forest Hills Eastern High School in Grand Rapids is called Gone Boarding.
Shop teacher Bruce Macartney and gym teacher Bill Curtis came up with the idea and they joined us today.
