Congratulations to Tyler Gray-Hoehn and Aaron Bauer for their success at the annual WCTC Automotive competition. On April 9, our two seniors took a written test individually and conducted  activities at stations as a team. The written examination consisted of shop procedures and diagnosing engine failures, and the stations were used for car part identification, brake assembly/disassembly, solving onboard diagnostic problems, and parts look-up. Tyler and Aaron took first place out of 15 schools that participated from Waukesha County. As a prize, both teammates won stocked tool boxes worth $700 courtesy of Snap-On tools. While most of the students from other schools have three to four years of autos courses available, Brookfield Central offers just one and a half years worth of these classes. Tyler, the founder of BC’s small engines club, has already taken the small engines, auto systems, and auto tune-up classes taught by Broetzmann. He plans on studying mechanical engineering or naval architecture next year.
