Techno CNC Routers in Education
“At the Commack Middle School, we take our technology education seriously. Five years ago, when we were considering modernizing our program, we looked to Techno for help. Together, we decided on a CAD/CAM/CNC package that included a Techno CNC Router. With these additions, we instantly transformed our department from 1950’s technology, to the 21st century. We now have the ability to design digitally, convert those designs to language understood by our CNC, and machine projects with ease. We use our equipment to design and manufacture CO2 cars, cutting boards for our woodworking club, and extensively throughout our STEM elective.
With Techno’s help, we transitioned our students quickly and easily. Most importantly, kids love the new technology. They understand the technology and how it can be applied to real world circumstances, are comfortable with software, and enjoy the computer/machine interaction, so there is very little teacher “salesmanship” required to get a “buy-in” from all students.”
