Earlier this week, Mr. Nichols took some of his Tech Ed students on a field trip to Superior. They toured Genesis Attachments, Epicurean Factory, and Northwood Technical College in Superior, WI. Genesis makes very large destruction and recycling implements for construction companies. Epicurean makes many different kitchen items, but primarily cutting boards. And at Northwood Tech the students toured all of the programs offered through their various programs.
