Grant helps students get hands-on business experience

RANDOLPH —  CardinalCAM (computer aided manufacturing) Industries, a school-based business at the Randolph School, is in its third year of operation and continues to provide students with manufacturing experiences.
One of the goals of having a school-based business is to be able to provide “better employees” for businesses in the area when the students graduate. Randolph students taking the CardinalCAM class are exposed to modern machining work experiences, communicating with and understanding customer wants, and are held accountable for the quality and price of the work they produce for the customer.
Craig Flaming, who is in his ninth year at the Randolph School, set up the CardinalCAM business and is the instructor for the class.
“This is a unique opportunity for the students to have a business experience from start to finish,” Flaming said. “We cover every aspect of the manufacturing business – we also do all the bookkeeping. Any profits that are made go back into the business and are used to purchase materials, equipment for the business.”
