The Conroe HS HUNCH team is an industrial technology club that meets after school. Machining at this school is a new technology field. Clear Creek HS has provided the team with a copy of DVDs to aid the team in learning milling.
NASA has loaned the school a new CNC Mill. The school district was quick to provide the other needed items to get the mill to a usable state. The mill is now set up and running. 1/19/11
