The Ivy Tech campus in Warsaw is celebrating national Manufacturing Day.
It’s a day meant to address misconceptions about manufacturing by giving manufacturers a chance to showcase what they do. The day also gives these employers a chance to address the skilled labor shortage they face.
Over a thousand 8th grade students will participate in a program to learn about manufacturing opportunities throughout Kosciusko County.
Students will then tour the Warsaw Area Career Center, Ivy Tech’s Orthopedic and Advanced Manufacturing Training Center, and a Kosciusko County manufacturing facility.
The “Discover ME: A Future of Possibilities” program takes place October 2-5 from 8 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.
