To stretch our bang for the buck, we were able to negotiate a discount from Boss on the overall cost. And we opted to vent the exhaust out of the building rather than purchasing a filter system (we met with the DNR on emissions considerations to make sure this would not add any further costs or complications). These decisions enabled us to purchase a larger unit and a more powerful laser while keeping us below our budget! We are eager to receive the machine and will post an update when installation is complete.
At Proto, our mission is to build creativity, confidence and grit in our youth through hands-on, STEAM-focused projects, workshops and teams. The addition of the laser cutter will go a long way toward this mission!
We certainly didn’t do this on our own! We are grateful to the following folks for their generous support in helping meet our funding goals to make this purchase: The Green Bay Rotary Foundation, The Cornerstone Foundation, WPS Foundation, Commercial Horizons, Nicolet Bank, Diane and Richard Rockhill, Wayne and Sue Hornberger and Mr. Richard Resch.
