Help me give my students new dial calipers. Dial calipers and micrometers are measurements tools used in many different manufacturing careers today. After our recent aerospace manufacturing job fair, my students are excited about learning advanced measurements tools!

Hooray! This project is fully funded
I teach Students in grades 9-12 at in a diverse and exciting classroom. Students in my class are excited to explore the world of engineering as a possible career field in the future. My students are inventive and creative in solving real-world problems and are hungry to learn new things.
My students enjoy the use of math and science in practical activities creating things that improve everyday life.
My students look forward to moving on from high school continue their education in a college or vocational/trade training program, many of them looking toward the military to pay for their college.
In our Engineering classes, we review measurements that they have learned in other classes. Currently we are working on our blueprints reading and writing skills. In order to dimensions their drawings, our students need to accurately measure.
These dial calipers will allow each student to have their own tool in class rather than sharing in a group.
They learn how to calibrate the tool and measure to the ten thousands place accurately. We will use then for measurements for all of our projects for the rest of the school year. Calipers and micrometers are percussion measurements tools that develop skills that helps make our students become competitive in aerospace manufacturing careers.
