Manitowoc Shipbuilding and Burger Boats built ships and boats there so a historical tie in is possible. I thought that perhaps getting the local high school involved in research, drafting, assembling a prototype, and writing instructions would benefit the school and the museum. It could cross involve the history class, drafting class, wood shop, art class, and English class to produce a finished product. I'm wondering if there would be enough interest to make a project like this worthwhile.
This is a fantastic idea and you should definitely pursue it!!! For many reasons!!

Let us know how it gets received.
