Abstract

The words shop class conjure up a messy place where sawdust and metal shavings pile up on the floor as awkward birdhouses are built up on the tables. Computer lab, on the other hand, brings up images of white floors and walls, whirring fans, and overly-good air conditioning. It is also the last place on earth that you would want sawdust and metal shavings. School districts have been closing out their shop classes, because of perceived lack of student interest or liability concerns, as computer labs become ubiquitous.
