With a goal to introduce students to manufacturing careers by developing a curriculum based on hands-on activities and direct interactions with local manufacturers, the Summer Manufacturing Institute of Senator Sherrod Brown’s office would like to expand to more Ohio counties.
The program has been operating for four years and has engaged kids in more than 11 counties. Each participating county develops a summer day camp for middle school students to suit the needs and resources of the local community. Kids visit local manufacturers for hands-on experience.
Here is a fact sheet about the program. We’ll keep you updated about opportunities. In the meantime, please contact either Jeanne Wilson or Sarah Lowry in Sen. Brown’s office. 12/13/2016
