Students participate in revamped Discover Manufacturing week November 9–13
Every year, as part of Discover Manufacturing Week (DMW), Career Tech Center students enrolled in manufacturing-related programs, join employers across West Michigan for an introduction to modern manufacturing through facility tours, open houses, block parties and more. DMW is a region-specific collaborative in West Michigan tasked with addressing the talent needs of manufacturing in the region.
This year, teens will participate via live, virtual events using the Zoom webinar platform. All webinars will be recorded and uploaded to a newly created Discover Manufacturing YouTube Channel and will be easily available for future use by students, parents, and educators.
As part of DMW, CTC Machining/Engineering Technology students will participate in live webinars with leaders from Scherdel Sales & Technology, ADAC Automotive, Quality Tool & Stamping, Eagle Alloy, GE Aviation, and Webb Chemical.
