This isn’t your dad’s shop class. In one corner of the NEWTECH Skills Center, students are editing digital interviews on high-tech computers in a class called Animation Technology and Special Effects.Upstairs, students work in the Pre-Dental Assisting program in a room that looks like a giant dentist’s office. A few doors down, dozens more are creating works of art in the kitchen and in the cosmetology class.
