Jackson County Chronicle: Brett Geisler didn’t know how to use three-dimensional printers until Black River Falls High School acquired the technology.
Geisler, a junior, took a 3-D design class last semester, but his interest in the printers — which make tangible objects from digital files — took off as he developed the skills to use them as a hobby.
“I kind of thought they were cool, but I didn’t know how to operate them,” Geisler said of when the school first had them available.
“Overall, I learned what I was able to do with it, and I took it to a different level.”
The printing technology is one of several upgrades the school is in the process of making to its technology education department to develop an engineering lab that will increase academic opportunities and students’ interest in the engineering field.
