Innovation: Students Learn About Manufacturing

Dec 9, 2016

Ten middle school teams were recently paired with different manufacturing companies to learn about different advanced manufacturing careers. The teams of six students spent a half day at their assigned company filming and interviewing various employees to find out what they liked about their jobs. By the end of January, the teams will submit their videos for a contest, explaining what they think is cool about manufacturing. The winners will enjoy an awards ceremony.
