On May 7, Brookfield Central Seniors Logan Schauer and Daniel Wieter took home the silver in the 2021 Technicians of Tomorrow (ADAMM) Automotive Competition Finals! Logan and Daniel competed against five other teams from Southeastern Wisconsin in a hands-on performance held at the Greater Milwaukee International Car & Truck Show at State Fair Pair. Additionally, their instructor Mr. Barry Ritchey (Applied Technology, BCHS) took first place in the Instructor Competition at the event!
The pair qualified for the Finals in January with a combined score of 102 on the ASE-Maintenance and Light Repair written exam, the highest score of all competing teams. Students who competed in Technicians of Tomorrow were evaluated on their knowledge of tools and measurements, interview skills, and the ability to diagnose and repair problems on a vehicle within a specific time limit. All teams had the same make and model vehicle with the same bugs to diagnose and fix. As part of the preparation for the competition, students spent time working with certified technicians at local dealerships.
Congratulations to Logan, Daniel, and Mr. Ritchey on your incredible work!
