Oct 2: National Manufacturing Day
An event with regional high schools is coming up on October 2nd, 2014. This event will take place at Bloom High School, 101 W 10th St, Chicago Heights, IL 60411, from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. This Calumet Green Manufacturing Partnership (CGMP) initiative allows manufacturers to address common misperceptions about industrialization, a skilled labor shortage, connect with future generations, take charge of the public image of manufacturing and ensure the ongoing prosperity of the whole industry. Through speeches in the morning and site visits, students will get an inside look at the local plants and careers in advanced manufacturing.
This year, the event will include students from 7 high schools! We’ll organize 1 site visit per group of 10-15 high school students. The tours will go from 10:15 a.m. to noon.
The site visits will be followed by an open house at Prairie State College from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
