For a second year, we have worked with Spaulding High School and their WBL program. This program gives high school students the opportunity to get real-world job experience so they can get some idea of what they want to do for a future career. This year we had the privilege of working with Paxton, who just graduated from Spaulding High School and is off to UConn in a couple of days.
Paxton has worked on many projects here at Filabot such as extrusion testing, manual write-ups, and helping with some design on our products (coming soon). He came to Filabot to get a better understanding of how engineering works in the real world and to make sure that it is really what he wanted to do. When he gets to UConn, he plans on studying Mechanical Engineering and wants to join the band.
He has been a huge help around the shop and we couldn’t be more thrilled with what his future brings. Good Luck Paxton!
