Curious about insider info?

How to become a precision mechanic? Is that fun? And what are the advantages and disadvantages of the profession? The team at the Osterrath secondary school in Rheda-Wiedenbrück investigated these questions. In the film club, they learned how to produce their own videos: From editing, to the camera, to the cut. They accompanied Kevin Stroot for a day and got to the bottom of it. Kevin's instructors also have a lot to say about the profession.
