THS students gain hands-on experience operating CASE construction equipment
For the Tomahawk Leader
TOMAHAWK – Students enrolled in Tomahawk High School’s building trades classes completed their excavation unit by getting hands-on learning experience thanks to CASE Construction Equipment in Tomahawk.
Students were able to work on their operating skills in bulldozers, tractor loaders, mini excavators and backhoes.
Once they were done learning how to run the equipment, they got to show off the skills they learned by competing in a challenge set up by CASE. Students would compete by picking up two basketballs off of cones and dumping them in a garbage can using a backhoe.
Mason Evans, who completed that challenge in the fastest time, was crowned champion of the competition.
“This is an amazing experience for our kids here at Tomahawk, and we would like to extend a thank you to all the guys and gals at CASE that made this learning experience possible,” said instructor Andy Peissig.
