Two space-age, state-of-the-art manufacturing laboratories and a new classroom opened to techno­logy students for fall classes in a 13,700-square-foot addition to Wilber Hall.

The new spaces, like the construction and renovations surrounding them, represent an investment in preparing students to survive and thrive in an evolving world, said Dan Tryon ’89, a technology education faculty member helping guide the School of Education renewal projects.
