Nebraska HS Begins Renovations for Industrial Arts Technology Center

Renovations to make way for a new industrial arts technology center began at Blair High School, reports the Pilot-Tribune & Enterprise.

The updated facility will house a welding lab identical to one at Metropolitan Community College, fostering a partnership between the high school and community college. High school students will be able to take college/dual credit courses in welding, manufacturing and computer programming, at no cost to the district.

The 14,000-square-foot renovation includes a construction science lab, manufacturing lab, automotive lab, art room, and computer science and robotics lab. The original building was completed in 1970.
