Dream Builders is a show on MyArlingtonTV that highlights the ways our community is helping kids dream big, nurture their creativity, polish their skills and develop the tools they need to achieve their American Dream as young adults.
The latest Dream Builders episode focuses on the students enrolled in the Precision Metal Manufacturing program at Arlington ISD’s Dan Dipert Career and Technical Center, located at 2101 Browning Dr, Arlington, TX 76010.
Courses in this program are designed to prepare students to be able to apply knowledge and technical skills to work with computer numeric controlled (CNC) heavy machinery from setup to operation to produce parts and tools from metal, plastic or other materials.
According to AISD’s website, CNC machinists make adjustments to the machine to control speed, material feed and path of the cut, as well as make sure the machines are set up properly, working well, and producing quality products.
The Arlington ISD Dan Dipert Career and Technical Center offers state-of-the-art courses in career and technical fields to all district high schools. The building accommodates 4,800 students every two days and features programs in animation, architecture, automotive, biomedical science, broadcasting, cosmetology, construction, culinary/hospitality, engineering, entrepreneurship, Fire Academy, graphic design, health sciences, horticulture, information technology, law enforcement, photography, precision manufacturing and welding.
