Teenagers in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin, are building mini choppers as a school project.
Five teams of high school students will build bikes in a project called Project Mini-Chopper. It’s part of the Manitowoc County High School Manufacturing Project and this is the third year the project has been running.
The goal is to promote manufacturing in the area and to teach business and manufacturing skills to students.
Each team is sponsored by a local company, which will own the mini chopper upon completion in the spring. Completed projects have to be good and have to run if the students want a passing grade.
