Experiential learning opportunities
Experience Georgian: Inside the machine shop
If you like working with your hands, the machine shop is the place for you.
In this video, professor Mike Zacharko and his student Nicholas demonstrate a typical class assignment. Starting with nothing, they inject calculations and creativity into their drawing, mill the metal, and assemble the pieces to produce a toy car. Watch their progress from start to finish.
