Mason County Central School District seventh grade students got some hands-on learning Friday morning. The school partnered with Makers Market of Ludington and Carrom Company to teach the students some skills. There was only a half day of school Friday, because the teachers were holding in-service training in the afternoon. During the morning session, the seventh graders participated in three tracts including a building/problem solving tract hosted by Makers Market of Ludington, and also a lesson in playing Carrom, with Ben Nelson, representing Carrom Company. The students also participated in a tract on computer coding. Teacher Phil Quinlan explained that the half a day session was an opportunity for the students to learn innovation and have a break from regular classroom lessons.
