Wisconsin high school students create grill replica of Miller Park (photos)

Members of Engineering Club from Kohler High School in Wisconsin — nearby the Whistling Straits golf course, the site of the 2010 PGA Championship (the more you know) — recently competed in an event called “Project Grill” along with other schools throughout the region. Their submission? A replica of Miller Park, home of the Milwaukee Brewers. The Miller Park Replica Grill even has a retractable roof — its cover — exactly like the major league ballpark. Far freaking out, man.

The concept behind Project Grill:

Project Grill pairs high schools around Sheboygan County with manufacturing partners in the community to work together to build a customized grill from scratch. By building the grills, high school students will be exposed to exciting technology and learn that a career in manufacturing can be very rewarding. Kohler was partnered with Vollrath Company.

Indeed. More photos follow.

Awesome, totally awesome. And the best part? They get to have a killer barbecue after the competition, if they so desired. Although it would be a shame to mess up that bad boy with bratwurst drippings and kielbasa juice.
