Making awards and keepsakes seems simple, but we would not be able to do it without key things we learned in school.
Science - The machines we use for engraving utilize lasers, diamonds, air pressure, and observation.
English - We constantly edit and spell-check our work, analyze conversations with clients, and effectively communicate with team members to complete our projects.
Math - While designing a project, we have to make sure exact measurements are taken, double-check that angles are accurate, and problem-solve issues that arise.
Social Studies - We keep records of all previous jobs and customers. This way, when someone asks about their previous orders, we can look into our archives and find pertinent information. We also provide excellent customer service with people of many cultures and backgrounds.
Art - We use a variety of artistic methods and applications to design our products. Painting, Adobe Illustrator, Photoshop, and aesthetics to name a few.
Technology/Computers - Our machines have complicated user interfaces that we utilize every day and we use computers to design, communicate, market, and analyze our work.
Health/Safety/Physical Education - Within our workshop, we have potentially dangerous chemicals, sharp tools with which to cut metal, and mechanical dangers that we make sure to manage safely. We are also often on our feet and dodging physical obstacles to finish our projects.
So, I guess what we're trying to say is, "Thank you!" for teaching us the skills necessary for our job.
