Model Program: Brillion High School, Brillion, Wisconsin
Meyer, Steve
Technology Teacher, v67 n1 p32-34 Sep 2007
The Brillion School District is located in Brillion, Wisconsin, approximately 20 miles south of Green Bay in the heart of the Fox Valley. Brillion High School (BHS) has approximately 330 students in Grades 9-12. Brillion is home to approximately 3000 residents. Interestingly, Brillion also serves as the headquarters of three major manufacturing companies (Ariens Company, Endries International, and Brillion Ironworks). Collectively these companies employ almost as many workers as the entire city's population. This, coupled with the proximity to the manufacturing-rich Fox Valley Area (Neenah, Menasha, Appleton, Kaukauna, Green Bay, etc.) and the extremely innovative Fox Valley Technical College, lends itself to many rich resources to use in the teaching of a contemporary technology and engineering curriculum. This article describes a model program at BHS. The goal of the program is to create technologically literate young people who have the skills, knowledge, and innovative ways of thinking that will allow them to be successful in all future employment, citizenship, and education opportunities. The curriculum and facility are continually developing to meet this ever-changing goal.
