MCHS Core Craft Students Take Interactive Tour of Cedar Mountain Quarry

Earlier in March, students in the MCHS Core Craft program, the drone team, and physics students were able to see real life work as they traveled to Cedar Mountain Quarry in Mitchells, Virginia.  They toured the entire facility from the pit to the asphalt plant and learned about job opportunities as well as some Earth Science.  Students witnessed a blast in the quarry and observed a drone filming the blast for analytical purposes.  Afterwards, students went to the Germanna Daniel Technology Center to learn about Dual Enrollment, Apprenticeship and Associate Degree programs offered by Germanna Community College.  Students practiced on virtual welding machines, observed 3D printers at work, and watched the drone videos from the blast earlier in the day.
