On Tuesday, November 21st, Team 135 sent four representatives to Patrick Metals. The group was introduced to Bob Fickle, the operations manager, who gave them a short tour of their factory. This included an explanation of the process of metal extrusion, and their use of these parts. They also had processes such as anodizing, powder-coating, and machining.

Throughout this tour, Mr. Fickle discussed with us what metal was available for our use, then we went across the street to Yellow Dog Extrusion. We are very thankful for the nice learning experience and the metal donations for Team 135.
