Congratulations to #WausauSchools East High Tech Ed and Wausau Engineering and Global Leadership (EGL) Academy for placing at Greenheck's 2nd Annual Engineering Innovation Challenge and Expo. East won 2nd place and received $500 towards their school's Tech Ed department, and EGL won 3rd place and received $250.

These student teams were matched with a Greenheck mentor to value engineer a single Greenheck bathroom fan. The project consisted of reducing cost by product redesign using Auto Cad or considering efficiencies in materials or labor, a cost savings presentation, and finally on creative design of product accessories. Students also toured the plant to see how the product is built. It was a great opportunity for students to work directly with engineering mentors on a real-world problem and then present their designs to Greenheck employees at the expo.
