Candor School District Receives Donation

From Candor Central Schools:

Candor Central School District's Technology Education Program will be accepting delivery of a very generous donation of a Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) milling machine. This machine is being donated by Stork H&E Turbo Blading of Ithaca, NY on December 19th around 10 am. This machine will be operated by students in the Computer Aided Drafting and Manufacturing programs.

The Technology Education program at Candor Central School District has partnered with Stork H&E Turbo Blading of Ithaca, NY to work with students as they learn advanced manufacturing technologies. For the past 14 years, Candor students have been using computer numerically controlled (CNC) technologies in the classroom with small bench type machines. The OKK VM4 that Stork H&E Turbo Blading is donating will allow students to use a machine that they may be using in an industrial setting eliminating the limitations of the bench type machines currently in use.

Stork H&E Turbo Blading has been discussing this donation with Stephen Lindridge, Technology Education Department Chair. As the Technology Education Department focuses on the Common Core curriculum and the direct ties to college and career readiness, this machine will afford students the opportunity to develop skills that are truly at a college and career level.

The donated machine will allow students to explore deeper the relationship of the designer and the builder in the manufacturing world. Stork H&E Turbo Blading has a need for the CNC programmers and operators as their business continues to grow.
