Community members visited Hamilton’s Applied Engineering and Technology (AET) Open House to tour state of the art labs, see class projects, meet teachers and hear directly from students about what they accomplished during the 2022-23 school year.
Teachers and students from Hamilton High School, Templeton Middle School and Silver Spring Intermediate School were thrilled to speak with community members and answer their questions during the event held June 6 at Hamilton High School.
Current AET facilities were created to foster innovation, hands-on learning and provide students with exceptional opportunities in the fields of engineering, construction, fabrication, graphic design and welding.
“We are grateful that so many community members and local business representatives attended our open house,” said Superintendent Paul Mielke, Ph.D. “We are incredibly proud of our award winning AET programs. This was an opportunity to help community members better understand why our schools are receiving statewide recognition following incredible advancements made possible by the successful 2018 referendum.”
Local business representatives remarked at the advanced and applicable skills students are now acquiring while in high school. Several community members remarked on how they were astonished by technological advances.
AET programs at Hamilton High School, Templeton Middle School and Silver Spring Intermediate School have all been awarded “Program of the Year” by the Wisconsin Technology Education Association. All three school AET programs were recognized for providing students with rigorous training and skill development in the areas and concepts of technology and engineering. This distinguished honor was made possible through the support of the Hamilton School District community.
