The call from Washington is loud and clear: The U.S. needs more skilled engineers for advanced manufacturing jobs that will boost the economy, as well as national security. Indeed, almost 40 percent of U.S. manufacturing executives say the gap in skilled workers is "severe," according to a recent survey conducted by Accenture and the Manufacturing Institute.

Charlottesville High School in Virginia has eagerly accepted the challenge by partnering with the University of Virginia on a new lab designed to enhance students' science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education.

"The project resulted from a combination of curriculum needs, student desire and national needs specifically focused on advanced manufacturing," said Jeff Faust, director of technology for Charlottesville City Schools (CCS).

A lab created to boost STEM skills, naturally, needs to feature cutting edge technology of its own. Enter two massive video walls.
