In the driver’s seat

Fox Valley Technical College in Appleton implemented a new combine simulator that gives agricultural students from five different programs another high-tech learning tool. “It’s a really fun way to practice behind the wheel,” says Sheila Weninger, who is pursuing two degrees, in Agribusiness Science and Technology with Agronomy and in Precision Agriculture. “For students with little experience on a farm, the simulator also builds confidence in a safe and comfortable setting.” The simulator is supported by a grant from the Wisconsin Technical College System.
