Learning with Your Hands: BC's Pen Club is Flourishing

Did you catch the recent story in the Altoona Mirror featuring Bishop Carroll’s Pen Club, a group in which approximately 20 students gather after school to hand craft wood and acrylic pens? This group is a success amid a day and age where many districts face cuts to music and art, including shop classes.

The club's advisor, Ed Graffte, who also teaches physics, math, and computers at BC, has also incorporated pen-making into the school's curriculum. Every junior and senior physics student makes a pen as part of his class, where they learn the concepts behind shaping the pens.
