Goodland, KS. (10/23/2018) – It’s one of the most exciting projects of the year for most of the Northwest Tech Engineering students who volunteer, plan, and set up a haunted house for the Goodland community. The idea came from students over eight years ago to use their creative and mechanical abilities to create a spooky evening event for community members.
“It’s an opportunity for students to learn to work together,” said Engineering Instructor, Mike Zimmerman.
The Engineering program was able to upgrade their materials and equipment this year because the Sherman County Community Foundation stepped in with a generous donation. The students were thrilled.
“Our students are very inventive, so it will be a creative experience,” Zimmerman said. “Students are using the skills they have acquired from our Engineering program and putting them to use to really make the haunted house a well put together, scary experience.”
Everyone is invited to come out and experience the haunted house. It will be hosted at the Sherman County Fairgrounds on October 26th, 27th, and 31st from 6pm-9pm each night. There will also be a “children’s version” of the haunted house on October 31st from 5:30-6:00pm. Admission is $3 per person or 3 cans of food per person. All canned food and money collected will be donated to benefit Genesis of Sherman County.
