North Country Manufacturing Day saw over 750 high school students from local districts ready to learn and interact. TDC work has worked closely with ETS and other planning committee members to ensure participants are engaged as they start to discover future career opportunities. 11 years ago, MFG Day was created to inspire students and highlight the rewarding experiences within the manufacturing industry. The event continues to capitalize on and grow the mission.
Students from 15 school districts were able to meet local leading manufacturers including Nova Bus, Michelin-Camso, SnapOn, Beta Technologies, Buckeye Corrugated, MRP Solutions, Alstom, Monaghan Medical, Upstone Materials, Norsk Titanium, Schulter Systems, 3DRPD, Pactiv and SnapOn. They were able to tour the Clinton Community College campus, build teamwork skills in the escape rooms, challenge their STEM knowledge, and experience an E-sports lab, Virtual Reality Career Exploration with the DOL as well as Virtual Welding.
This event would not have been possible without the help of the North Country Manufacturing Day Committee: ETS Staffing & Recruiting Agency, Clinton Community College, TDC, North Country Chamber of Commerce, CV-TEC, and CFES Brilliant Pathways.
