Learning about 3-D Printing and Revit

Leo Kitten lets LLC students print interesting products in their class - a head of President Bullock, rockets, virtual reality glasses and wind turbine models.

He toured us around the manufacturing classrooms and discussed how 3-D design is getting easier and more efficient with software such as Revit.

A LLC student showed us his home model on the computer that can change dimensions with a touch of a button and the computer can estimate the building materials needed to build it.

First Impressions Tour

Vicky and Cambry Hinds are co-owners of First Impressions in Charleston. They shared the education and steps they took to get into business for themselves and how to attract new business each year. A new marketing strategy that has been successful for them is to promote children's birthday parties at the shop with theme-based activities and props.
Corner of Happy & Healthy

Chad Harrison, manager at the Charleston Walgreens, gave us a tour and discussed the changes in the pharmacy industry. Walgreens wants their stores to be within 2 miles of 80-90% of the population. They now focus more on health and offer immunizations and follow-up calls with patients to make sure they take their medicine.
