WHEELING, W.Va. (WTRF)- Wheeling Park High School and Wheeling Nippon Steel are partnering up to teach students. Machine tool tech students were challenged by the steel company.

Students were asked to build a grapple for Nippon Steel and the challenge was accepted and conquered.

The Wheeling-Nippon GM says the students nailed the prototype and now they’ll design the real thing with aluminum.

A few representatives from the company were at Park today.

They took a tour and talked about the next steps and they say it’s a great experience for everyone involved.
