Manufacturing Day Photo 1 altered

This year several companies in our county celebrated Manufacturing Day 2018 by opening their doors and inviting our students, along with the general public, to tour their facility. Students in the last year of their program from Aviation, CADD, Engineering, IT Academy and Production Engineering toured Engility, JF Taylor and Platform Aeronautics. The students got the opportunity to see what these companies do, the tools and machinery they use and the amazing things they manufacture. In addition, students learned how what they are doing in their Forrest Center programs translates into opportunities for future careers with these companies. We are grateful that we were invited to participate in this event and look forward to working with these companies in the future to continue to build a trained local workforce in St. Mary’s County.
