Engineering Expedition

RoMan Manufacturing engineers have visited with middle school students in the Design & Modeling class earlier this year. They talked to them about how they use 3D design software and what their job entails. But this week, students were able to see first hand how this local company goes from design to product and the people who make it all happen. 

Leadership Visit

Van Andel Institute hosted several West Michigan schools at a Leadership Lunch & Learn event who are involved in their Purple Community cause. Students heard from two of Purple Community's major supporters, Lake Michigan Credit Union and SpartanNash about community relations and involvement and why they support the cause.

Kazoo Clean-up

For the third year, AP Biology teacher Kristin Alkire has asked her students to participate in a local clean-up effort of the Kalamazoo River. They learn about the contaminants in the Kalamazoo River as well as dig in to see all the trash people dump into it that doesn't help its condition.
