Cardinal Manufacturing will host an open house event on May 3, 2017, from 4 until 9 p.m., at the high school in which it is based, Eleva-Strum High School, W23597 U.S. Hwy 10, in Strum, Wisconsin. The event is open to the public and is sponsored by Haas Automation.

The open house will feature a raffle and live auction, as well as CNC machining demonstrations and refreshments. A 27x B Mod race car will also be an additional highlight. Attendees will tour Cardinal's facility, meet the students and learn how this program teaches its "employees" the valuable skills required for capturing one of the viable career opportunities available in manufacturing once they graduate.

MMT and sister publication Modern Machine Shop have covered Cardinal Manufacturing in recent years, focusing on its unique, student-run operations led by Instructor and Manufacturing Director Craig Cegielski, who helped launch the education-based company. Cardinal is a bonafide manufacturing business, it is profitable, and it offers a comprehensive strategy for teaching high school students about all aspects of working in, and running, a manufacturing operation.
