Students at Dubuque's Alternative Learning Center will have access to tools like sanders and scroll saws.

They can use those tools for hands-on projects.

"It's really rewarding when you have this idea of something in your head and you see all of that come to fruition and at the end of it all it feels so good," said Jacob Soto, who is a student.

The Alternative Learning Center holds classes for at-risk high school students who are enrolled in Dubuque's public schools.
