The Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation has awarded a
Fabrication Laboratories Grant of $25,000 for the Eau Claire Area School District.
McDonough Manufacturing is donating the matching $25,000 toward the project through the Eau Claire Public Schools Foundation, which is required by the grant. The grant will help the district purchase equipment for the development of a fabrication lab at both Memorial and North High Schools. ECASD will use the funds to purchase materials and equipment, including a laser engraver, industrial sewing machine, 3D printers, collaboration
workstations and multimedia recording equipment.
