Members of the North Tama School Board began their Monday, Dec. 20 meeting by touring the district’s Industrial Tech Lab as part of the meeting’s Spotlight on Education. As part of the tour, Industrial Tech teacher Rick Samuelson and senior Cale Bradley demonstrated the lab’s newly functional plasma cutter, producing a sign with the cutout letter ‘B’ much to the board members’ delight. Samuelson also showed the board the sundry items students have been producing with the lab’s 3-D printer including Redhawks’ coasters which each board member was given as a souvenir of the tour.
