Ashley Furniture mobile classroom
Featherlite recently built a specialty trailer for Ashley Furniture. The Mobile Skills Laboratory is providing students with the opportunity to take over 300 competency-based courses for high school credit. A four-school consortium will each host the Mobile Skills Laboratory at their school district on a nine-week rotational schedule. Enrolled students will have the opportunity to learn about STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) related fields, including electrical, wiring, motor controls, programming, print reading, mechanical fabrication, precision gauging, hydraulics, pneumatics, troubleshooting and computer aided drafting. A large number of these courses will also provide students with transferable credit to area technical colleges and potential universities.
