LCHS freshman students had the
opportunity to be part of a dozen different field trips to see
community colleges, private colleges, radio stations, businesses,
farms and many other different career interest areas. One of the
groups visited MTI in Springfield, where students toured the labs and
classrooms. The afternoon part of their field trip was to Maxim Inc.,
which builds sprint car frames. This tour demonstrated the applied
welding techniques learned at school and applied to a race car.
Maxim builds over 400 frames per year at the Springfield facility.
