Holt High School students recently participated in Manufacturing Day. This fun-filled interactive day is particularly important for our Project Lead the Way (Pre-Engineering Pathway) and Robotics students. It is a priority to Holt Public Schools that we expose our students to real-life applications of the curriculum they are learning. Manufacturing Day helps to immerse our students into the new high tech manufacturing environment and connects them with area employers. Our region is home to many high-wage high-demand jobs in the areas of robotics, automation, mechatronics, and manufacturing.
Each year, CAMC collaborates with member companies and area schools to host multiple tours region-wide on Manufacturing Day (MFG Day), which takes place on the first Friday of October. Over 1,000 students see manufacturing in action, meet the people who work in the field and hear their passion for their jobs, and learn about educational pathways that lead to good jobs in manufacturing.
When we can scale our Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) curriculum to a career readiness pathway program like Project Lead the Way and then mix in extracurricular learning opportunities like Robotics and Manufacturing Day, it creates a multi-faceted approach where our students can see and feel how the curriculum is relevant and prepares them for their future.
