Outfitting school workshops and vocational classes
with the right tools and furnishings

Across the U.S. there are numerous high schools, colleges and even middle schools that provide occupation specific development through vocational training and technical education. In middle and high school, many are called workshop classes where students learn with hands-on experience using tools and machinery. Oftentimes these learning spaces are called makerspaces or STEM rooms, where STEM is an acronym for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Students are encouraged to design, create, build and invent using items found in computer labs, art rooms, science labs and workshops. Beyond middle and high school, students who choose to pursue a career in one of the trades like carpentry, welding and masonry attend a vocational school.

Learning by doing requires something other than textbooks and laptops. In both vocational training and workshop classes, a variety of tools, furnishings and safety equipment can be found. Typical furnishings include workbenches, tool carts, storage cabinets, bin shelving, industrial stools and shop desks. Due to the type of work being performed, many are constructed of steel and heavy-weight capacities. Also, with the assortment of smaller supplies like nuts and bolts, bin shelving is a popular option to keep pieces organized and easy to find. Likewise, using tool carts equipped with oversized wheels and brakes for easy maneuvering is essential for keeping equipment close at hand. Regardless of the vocational training or industrial art program, having the required safety equipment is paramount. Items like safety glasses, goggles, ear plugs and headphones with hearing protection are designed to protect students’ hearing and eyesight. There may also be a need for additional safety supplies too, like eye wash stations, spill control stations and germicidal cabinets for disinfecting eyewear between uses.

School Outfitters carries all the essentials you need to furnish your hands-on learning spaces. Rely on our industry experts to keep your makerspaces, shop classes and vocational programs buzzing with activity.
