Southern Door to get new middle school fab lab

The Southern Door School District was awarded a $25,000 state grant for a fab lab in the middle school by the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC).  School Superintendent Patti Vickman says Southern Door was one of twenty schools in the state to receive funding through the WEDC program.  She says the new middle school addition will perfectly complement the high school fab lab that is being utilized by about two-thirds of the student body.



Vickman says the grant money will be used to purchase 3D printers, vinyl cutters, and wood engravers to get the fab lab started in the middle school.
