Advanced Manufacturing & STEM Awareness Week Activities (Fall 2016)
A Partnership with Wilkes Community College and Local Industry Representatives
Advanced Manufacturing 1 and Technology, Engineering & Design students from all four high schools visited Wilkes Community College on October 5th to discover training and career opportunities in the fields of advanced manufacturing and applied engineering.  Students were involved in hands-on activities as they learned about related programs at Wilkes Community College and spoke with local industry representatives about career opportunities and workforce needs.  Students learned about how manufacturing has evolved over the last several years to include more advanced technologies.  Click here to learn more about the Applied Engineering Program at WCC.
