A representative from Bosch presented two sets of power tools from the company to the Innovation Central High School Academy of Design and Construction on Friday, January 15, 2016. The presentation took place at the students’ job site, which is located at 251 Straight St NW.
The donation consists of two 18V cordless tool sets. Each set includes a ½” hammer drill/driver, reciprocating saw, circular saw, flashlight, and two 18V compact drill/drivers. The tools use lithium-ion batteries, which makes them ideal for working during the winter.
“I am very impressed with the young people who are learning a trade that will be a life-long skill they can use both personally and professionally, but to learn something new, one must have the right tools for the job,” said Adam Lindale, Project Manager at Bosch.
Lindale first became involved with Innovation Central as a mentor with the Academy of Modern Engineering. After learning about the Academy of Design and Construction, he felt Bosch power tools would be an excellent addition to the school. The donation comes from the Robert Bosch Power Tool Division, located in Mount Prospect, IL, and Robert Bosch Fuel Systems in Kentwood, MI.
