In this half-hour video-cast, AFS Institute Director of Education Shelly Dutler shares the latest course information and updates from the Institute, including:


One of the most popular parts of the course was the water modeling. Clear PVC pipe is used to simulate riser designs and the application of water flow illustrates design principals.


February classroom courses will be offered at the institute's headquarters in Schaumburg, IL. One of the most popular activities is the “Foundry In A Box” demonstration, also used in high school classrooms across the country to promote metal casting careers.
