works out and reports on an original problem involving mechanical movements.
This school is provided with plates and a cabinet of models illustrating mechanical movements and elementary combinations of mechanism. This collection is rapidly increasing by our own manufacture, and by purchase from abroad. It includes many of Rigg's models, and others from the celebrated manufactory of J. Schrceder, of Darmstadt, Germany. About two hundred valuable models from the United States Patent Office are also included in the cabinet. The State has provided a large Mechanical Laboratory and Workshop. The Pattern Shop is furnished with four complete sets of tools, benches and vises for pattern-makers. In a separate building are forges, a moulder's bench with sand, and brass and iron furnaces sufficient for the castings ordinarily required. Four additional sets of tools are provided for the special use of students in the shop-practice classes.
