My name is Noah Simeon and I have taken multiple classes at the Windham Regional Career Center, such as Architecture, English, Math, Electronics, Digital Electronics, and all of the automotive classes. In English, our final exam was a senior project that we started at the beginning of the year. I decided my senior project was going to be about building something that can show my passion for cars/motorcycles and that shows my creative side.

I researched projects and one that stood out to me was an end table made out of car and motorcycle parts, so I decided to try to recreate that project. This project connects to the Career Center because I learned all the skills I needed to make this project at WRCC. I took the Automotive class and learned a lot about cars and skills like welding. I even took classes at the Career Center outside of school to get certified in OBDII Diagnostics, Engine Management, and Wiring Fault Diagnostics.

My plan for the project was to take a car rim and use it as the base of the project. Next, I was going to use a metal pole to hold up the top of the table but later on in the project I found a car strut that would look better. On top of the strut I decided I was going to put a motorcycle gas tank. Lastly, I planned to attach a glass table top, on top of the tank. No one at the Career Center had a metal tank, so I looked around to see if anyone would donate one. Fortunately, Josh Steele, the owner of Vintage Steele in Brattleboro, told me I could come over anytime and pick out a tank so I went over to the shop and found one that worked perfectly!

This project is evidence that kids at the Windham Regional Career Center learn a lot of new hands-on skills. When people see our projects I hope they see that we are skilled at what we do because of the classes we attended. When parents and students see the work I expect they will want their kids and friends to go to the WRCC so they can learn great skills too. Attending the WRCC was a great experience and I highly recommend classes here. The teachers are great and always ready to help you in any way.
